The prison system can be harsh, monotonous and degrading. Work in prison can be tiresome, and close to slave labour. It’s a stark contrast to the interests or desires of the mob on the inside to the work they’d like to do, or even dreamt of doing one day.
Unless you’ve experienced the isolation and loneliness behind bars it can be hard to imagine. On today’s show Kutcha and Vickie hear from the men and women on the “inside” about the daily grind. Life and work on the “inside”. We listen to the brothers and sisters who are living the grind day in, day out, and try to understand just what this system is doing to our people.
In today’s episode we hear from Fuddy Senior, Fuddy Junior, Al Boy, Rocket, Travis, Jody, Mark, Eric and others in prisons across Victoria, as well as Beyond the Bars broadcasters Shiralee Hood, Johnny Mac, Ross Morgan, Kerri-Lee Harding and the late Lester Green.
