I've been writing to prisoners for two years. The people I've met are incredible and the issues they face make me furious. In each episode, I'll take something I learned from prisoners I've spoken with and research the policies and data behind it to get a clearer picture of what's going on. Everything I know comes from researching and listening to personal stories. I'm not an expert, I'm just very mad. For readable transcripts of each episode, go to http://jayleejames.com/chain-letters

An inmate wrote to Black and Pink that he is expected to fund his own healthcare despite having no means of earning money. He is required to work every day but does not earn any wages for his labor. Inspired by this, I researched the details and found what he said was absolutely true, and the specific details and statistics only make the situation that much more horrifying.
