Description

How does dating work in your 30s when you’ve been locked up since you were 15? How soon do you share your incarceration history with new love interests? And how the hell does online dating work? Recently released men and women muse about all of it, and one former San Quentin inmate tries to make a beeline from the gates to the altar.

wow, every time I hear Sarah speak on this podcast, it brings me to tears. She's so gentle and idk, soft? but you can tell she's a fighter and powerful and strong, and has done so much work to unpack and cope with her past....and then hearing that this new man in her life is Earlonne!? Holy shit, that made me cry like an idiot on my commute to work. I'm sending so much love and strength and well-wishes to the beautiful couple, and am glad to see that SOMETIMES, once in a while, things work out just as they should for that moment in time.
