Fracking Disclosures; A Country Called Prison

mary loomanWe’ll talk about what the growing prison system looks like from inside — and how it shapes the people who live there. Plus: newly-released statistics show oil companies in California dumping tens of millions of gallons of polluted water into unlined pits, injecting hundreds of millions more underground, and, in the case of 104 companies, witholding data on what they’re doing.

Guests:

  • Hollin Kretzmann, attorney with the Center for Biological Diversity
  • Mary Looman, psychologist at the Oklahoma Department of Corrections Reception Center, and co-author of A Country Called Prison: Mass Incarceration and the Making of a New Nation
