Prison Town

The Macon Newsroom and The Georgia Virtue

In the midst of a federal investigation into civil rights violations in Georgia’s prisons, this podcast uses one prison in South Georgia as a case study, tracing murders on the outside back to inmates on the inside. With hitmen for hire, prison riots, a multimillion-dollar contraband circle, and a warden that has been charged with corruption, the episodes illuminate many of the complex problems that plague our criminal justice system.
