Ear Hustle: Cellies
June 16, 2017 7:22 AM - Subscribe

At San Quentin Prison, the typical cell measures approximately 4' x 9' and contains a bunk bed, toilet, sink, two men, and their six cubic feet of belongings. In our first episode of Ear Hustle, hear stories of negotiating this space and the relationships that come with living in such close quarters.

Ear Hustle is produced by Nigel Poor, Antwan Williams and Earlonne Woods. Thanks to additional storytellers in this episode: Ron Self (had cellie from hell), Eddie and Emile DeWeaver (brother cellies), Cleo Cloeman (Earlonne's former cellie), Sha Wallace-Stepter & Donte Smith (laughing cellies). Thanks also to Joshua Burton and David Jassy (also incarcerated at San Quentin) for contributing some of the music used throughout Cellies.

This was wonderful!

I used to volunteer inside San Quentin, and know a few of these guys. They are extraordinary men, with amazing and often heart-wrenching stories. Looking forward to seeing just where this podcast is headed.

I mean, as someone with siblings, this really spoke to me.
