In the past 40 years, the American prison population has increased from 300,000 to 1.6 million. This week, Samantha and Remoy examine the prison industrial complex and the cyclical impacts of mass incarceration on men and society. They are joined by Alejo Rodriguez who faced incarceration himself before becoming the Mentor and Alumni Coordinator at the Prison Reentry Institute and shares his wisdom, weighing in on the dehumanization and intergenerational perpetuation of incarceration, how bullies are rewarded and how men are only allowed to deal with anger and pain.
