Ear Hustle: A Listen Inside San Quentin Prison Tuesday, November 29, 2016 | Sacramento, CA Listen / Update RequiredTo play audio, update browser or Flash plugin. What’s life behind bars like at the infamous San Quentin Prison? The new podcast "Ear Hustle" takes listeners inside the prison to listen to stories from the inmates themselves. The project won the Radiotopia podquest challenge and a 10-episode season will be funded through 2017. Sacramento State Professor Nigel Poor is the co-creator and co-host of the project, which is a culmination of multimedia work she’s been a part of at the prison over the past five years.
