Justice in America, hosted by Josie Duffy Rice and Clint Smith, is a podcast for everyone interested in criminal justice reform— from those new to the system to experts who want to know more. Each episode we cover a new criminal justice issue. We explain how it works and look at its impact on people, particularly poor people and people of color. We’ll also interview activists, practitioners, experts, journalists, organizers, and others, to learn. By the end of the episode, you’ll walk away with a better understanding of what drives mass incarceration and what can fix it.

bells went off for me when you discussed the extensive time and relatively small amounts of money that go into a foia request, and how this process is too ungainly for especially local reporters, but reporters in general, to access on a regular basis, and the extent to which foia requests would be useful in reporting on the criminal justice system. i did a quick google search for 'foia volunteer network' and found nothing. it occurs to me that citizens who care, who might be retired or with time on their hands, and/or who might have a few dollars to spare, could be a serious resource for journalists writing/reporting on the deeper issues in criminal justice. as was said in this podcast, even journalists working at top national outlets don't have the time to do the tedious and relentless work of obtaining the critical info only available through a foia request. i wonder if there is such an organization of volunteers, and if so, could someone point me in their direction? if not, this is something i would be interested in seeing developed. just as the people of ferguson helped to force mike brown's story to the national light, foia research volunteers could assist in their own way to delve deeper into issues below the superficial and predictable surface. anyone?

I'm a truck local truck driver. there are many podcasts an audio books out there. I've recently discovered this new world of information at my fingertip. being on the road for several hours at a time gives me much downtime or rather time to listen. I very much enjoy your podcast having come out of the penal system. while it's a bit easier to follow an audiobook usually an autobiography I tried to stay focused on message when listening to your podcast. there's a lot of meat on the bone with which to chew which takes more of my concentration then would otherwise be the case while reading or rather listening to books. I thank you for your service and concern for Humanity in the works that you do. Your are passion and love for community is evidenced by the thought-provoking guests you have on your show. You guys do an outstanding job keep up the good work.
