*Content Warning: This episode of Doin' Time contains audio images and discussion of Aboriginal and Torres-Strait Islander people who have died, and contains sensitive and triggering descriptions of racial violence. 

 First up, Marisa is joined by Megan Krakouer and Gerry Georgatos (Project Director and National Coordinator of the National Suicide Prevention and Trauma Recovery Project, respectively) They discuss the death of a young man due to racial profiling, and a lawsuit taking on the WA State Government for the treatment of Aboriginal children at the Banksia Hill Detention Centre.

 Marisa also speaks with Brett Collins, Coordinator with Justice Action, about music in prisons and a book published earlier this year, Music-Making in Prisons: Listening to Incarcerated Voices, written by Mary L. Cohen and Stuart P. Duncan.
