Brian Dunn and Producer Jim Oates

This week, Brian Dunn is in studio with producer Jim Oates to discuss the rise of the Prison Industrial Complex. Driven by drug convictions and harsh sentencing, Brian explores the history of incarceration in the United States, the drive to privatization of Prisons, and the emerging issue of Immigrant Detention. The US has the highest rate of incarceration in the world, including prison rates in China, Russia, or any 3rd world nation. Brian asks why.
