Elizabeth Greenwood: ...that the perfect relationship is different for everyone
Play • 33 min

On this episode, we’ll explore a question many of us have probably pondered, but relatively few of us have experienced. What’s it like to fall in love with someone in prison? Our guest, journalist Elizabeth Greenwood, spent five years following the ups and downs of five couples who met during incarceration. 

She’s written about it in the new book, LOVE LOCKDOWN: Dating, Sex, & Marriage in America's Prison System. The book profiles people who took the greatest leap of faith to develop a relationship in an environment that is, by design, meant to keep love out.
