Ear Hustle is back with season four! Let’s get oriented: to a new format and a new inside host, and through the stories of guys learning the prison ropes in Reception, while they wait to find out where they’ll serve their time.
A heads-up: This episode contains graphic descriptions of violence. Listener discretion is advised.
