23 Invitation to Step Outside

We talk on the phone to Giovanni Reid, our featured juvenile lifer, in the morning and afternoon of December 22nd. Things are starting to move for juvenile lifers in general, and for Giovanni in particular. He has now been given another date to look forward to, apart from his next status hearing on January 13th – and it isn’t Christmas. He might need some more boxes……..

An incarcerated podcast listener, a scuppered prison visit, inappropriate attire, and some lifer literature.
