Small Town Dicks returns February 28
Trevor Walraven was convicted of an unthinkable crime when he was 14 years old. He spent nearly 18 years in prison before he was released. In this two-part conversation, we talk to him about the crime he committed, his co-defendant,  how he spent his time in prison, and his emergence as an advocate for giving other inmates a second chance to become productive members of society. Trevor Walraven spent nearly 18 years in prison for a murder he committed when he was 14 years old. He was released after going through Oregon’s “Second Look” process, which required him to show he had taken responsibility for his crime and demonstrated "outstanding reformation." He now advocates for criminal justice reform with a special focus on youth, who he argues are more likely to reform and deserve meaningful opportunities when released. Trevor co-founded the Oregon Youth Justice Project under the Oregon Justice Resource Center in mid 2018.

Long time listener, I obviously like this podcast but guys. Friendly advice - the amount of ads in one episode (especially recently) is really over the top. I totally get it, that's how you make money. However, maybe get just one or two ad segments and ram 5mins (or however much) of ads in there? And not interrupt the ep 4 or 5 times? It's really annoying, even more so on shorter eps where it sometimes feels like there's an ad every 5 minutes.

I love this show but there's a lot of ignorance about sex work on display in the episode, and I didn't care for some of the judgemental comments, particularly from Yeardley. There should be no victim blaming, both parties involved are victims in their own way.
