Stories with very important perspective
I love to hear from Nigel and Earlene as they navigate the world of the prison system on the inside and the outside. I binged Ear Hustle for weeks all at once when I found it because it was so unlike all the podcasts out there. Truly inspiring, heartbreaking and funny as hell. You’ll fall in love with so many people from the hosts to the people in the yard. This is honest, creative and down right amazing work as a podcast. Listen to this and listen with an open mind and open heart.
It's always great to hear authentic voices of people who society often forgets. The way Earlonne and Nigel do an excellent job of allowing their guests to tell their stories in their voice in a way that never seems exploitive or voyeuristic.
My husband has done 30+ years in various state prisons throughout his life, and we enjoy listening to this one together. Outstanding quality in every way.
I've been listening to Ear Hustle since the beginning, and it's taught me a lot about life in prison. What I love about this show is that it is never salacious or sensational, but rather it works to engender empathy between the prison population and those of us on the outside. I think this kind of connection is critically important, and that this show is doing important work to help listeners understand across difference, which is something the world sorely needs right now.
Behind the scenes stories that someone like me would otherwise never hear. Quality listen.
I've been binging Ear Hustle to catch up after forgetting about this podcast once season 1 finished. Season 1 wasn't too bad but I'm actually enjoying it even more in season 2 & 3. It's interesting to get a glimpse of what life's like in prison in the U.S.
Like the concept of a podcast from prison; stories feel very real. Likable hosts. Eventually the episodes dragged, however, and the direction changed. Had to unsubscribe.
From cellies, misguided loyalty and so much more. We hear from inmates on questions we always want to ask like, how do you catch a kite? What is a kite? How do you get it on with your girlfriend or wife? These are just a few subjects they cover in season one. - Podcast Junkie
A very thoughtful and engaging podcast. I am always recommending this one to all my podcast listening friends as I consider it one of the best!
Fascinating and engaging. Really great hosts and stories from situations far removed from my own.
Compelling human stories, fascinating to learn what live is like inside, ... and a good motivation to pursue PRISON REFORM.
I love this podcast. It's witty and sharp and thoughtful and big-hearted. In their own words, people incarcerated at San Quentin narrate their personal experiences of prison life, going from the practical things that we might take for granted, to deeper issues such as parenting, gender and sex trafficking.
A real look into the sobering reality of prison life... highly recommend.
Creative concept. Real inmates in jail doing a podcast about prison.
