Ear Hustle’s “Thick Glass” – Snap Special

June 21, 2018

Snap Judgment joins the podcast Ear Hustle, from PRX’s Radiotopia, for a look at parenting from inside San Quentin State Prison.

In this episode incarcerated fathers share their stories of striving to be present in their children’s lives. One inmate reconnects with his son after 20 years. Another stays very involved through letters and visits. And a third gets the opportunity to give his teenage son a haircut.

And stay tuned for the exclusive interview with Glynn and the team behind Ear Hustle. Nigel Poor, Earlonne Woods, Antwan Williams, along with Public Information Officer Lt. Sam Robinson discuss family relationships while incarcerated in San Quentin State Prison.

Thanks to the fathers who shared their stories: Derrick Holloway, John Newman and Maverick, and thanks also to Derrick Jr. for talking with us.

Thick Glass was scored with music and sound design by David Jassy and Antwan Williams, with contributions from Lee Jasper, Maserati-E and Charlie Spencer. Here’s a transcript for Thick Glass.

Special Thanks to SQSP’s Lt. Sam Robinson and Warden Ron Davis for supporting the show.
