The SHU
Play • 28 min

The hole, the box, solitary confinement. It doesn’t matter what you call it; doing time in the SHU (Security Housing Unit) means you are alone and segregated from the general prison population. In this episode, four men who served between 8 and 28 years in the SHU share their memories of that time.

Thanks to Armando Flores, Gus Lamumba Edwards, Richard Johnson and Isaac Flores for telling their stories, and to John YaYa Johnson for assisting with this episode.

Ear Hustle is produced by Nigel Poor, Antwan Williams and Earlonne Woods with consulting editor Curtis Fox, outside production advisor Pat Mesiti-Miller and executive producer Julie Shapiro.

Who Cares? (Part 4): Care During COVID
Caregiving has always been hard work, and heart work. It has always been challenging, rewarding, grueling and life-giving. It has always been work worth doing, and work whose worth is challenged, or hard to quantify. And adding COVID to the mix…didn’t help. This episode is filled with stories from caregivers; people who were thrust into this role by COVID, or found the role further complicated by COVID. It is a reminder that you are not alone, even when you are bone-achingly lonely. An piece of recognition and appreciation for all of you. A few additional things: Our friends at Still Kickin have *two* upcoming caregiver workshops to help you find connection and support.
