In our second episode of season two, host Skye Pillsbury interviews Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods, the creators and hosts of Ear Hustle. Ear Hustle, which was named a finalist for the first Pulitzer Prize for audio reporting this year, tells stories about daily life in San Quentin Prison. During this interview Nigel and Earlonne reveal:
  • How they knew they had nailed their pitch to podcast network Radiotopia;
  • What anxieties the team faced after Earlonne was released from prison;
  • Why the team has begun telling stories that are “harder to process";
  • The unique challenges of making a podcast inside a prison.
