S2E15 - Prisoners

Thanks to Carlee Purdum from the Hazard Reduction & Recovery Center at Texas A&M for joining us this week to share about her research on disasters and prisoners, and unpack some of the narratives that shape our understanding of incarceration, particularly in the United States. How are prisoners particularly at risk in disasters, and how does the state exploit their status as modern day slaves? Download and listen in to this and more!
