WBEZ’s Podcast Passport, in partnership with Radiotopia from PRX, presents a conversation with the creators of one of the most original podcasts of our time: Ear Hustle. Join Reset with Jenn White host Jenn White and Ear Hustle co-hosts Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods for a lively discussion about the show’s unique origin story and surprising evolution across four seasons.
Ear Hustle offers insight into daily life inside and after prison, shared by those living it. The podcast is a partnership between Poor, a Bay Area visual artist and educator, and Woods, formerly incarcerated at San Quentin State Prison.
The Ear Hustle team works in the San Francisco Bay Area, both in San Quentin State Prison’s media lab and from offices on the outside, to produce stories that are sometimes difficult, often funny and always honest. Episodes offer a nuanced view of people involved with the American prison system and those reintegrating into society after serving time.
