Join us for an informal conversation with the co-creators of the award-winning podcast that began inside San Quentin State Prison. The Ear Hustle team works in the San Francisco Bay Area, both in San Quentin State Prison’s media lab and from offices on the outside, to produce stories that are sometimes difficult, often funny and always honest. Episodes offer a nuanced view of people involved with the American prison system and those reintegrating into society after serving time.

This event is co-sponsored by the Jesuit Foundation and presented in conjunction with the exhibition, A Matter of Liberation: Artwork from Prison Renaissance, on view at the Thacher Gallery through Nov. 6.
