How EarBuds Podcast Collective works:
Each week, a theme is chosen by one of our curators. That curator finds 5 podcast episodes (from anywhere!) to go along with that theme. Listen to these podcasts by clicking on the links above, through the RadioPublic app, or you can find (most of) them on your favorite podcast app (iTunes, Stitcher, Overcast…)
PODCAST CURATOR’S NAME: Shira Muroff
WHY THIS THEME?: While volunteering with Big House Books in Jackson, Mississippi, I have been thinking more about the prison system on the micro and macro levels.
MONDAY EPISODE (9/25): This American Life – Act V – 55 minutes
TUESDAY EPISODE (9/26): StoryCorps – One Iota of Light – 18 minutes
