Episode 336 | 26m 46s | Video has closed captioning.

In 2020, authorities at the Louisiana State Penitentiary (better known as Angola for the former plantation on which it stands) shut down a play in the middle of a performance. What happened in that audience that got guards so concerned? Join Laura to reflect on the intersection of art and politics, incarceration and economics, and the work of VOTE, the criminal justice reform group.
