This episode, we're taking a deeper look at environmental injustices in an around prisons. How are they sited, what do they emit, and what does all of this mean for people locked inside?
We start with the history of the St. Louis and Central Michigan correctional facilities with Dr. Elizabeth Bradshaw, move through trends with Candice Bernd and legal arguments with Taylor Carpenter, and start the discussion around what can be done to improve conditions.
