Short Description: 
Perspectives on Prison from the students at Portland Youth Builders

Megan Vosk hosts this evening’s Prison Pipeline. It presents three short pieces produced by students in the media program at Portland Youth Builders. All three pieces provide interesting perspectives on prison life. The first piece talks about how the media portrays the prison lifestyle as glamorous. The students analyze a song, a movie and a news clip, and find that in general the media perceives prison as a macho place. The second piece compares the difference between prison myths and reality. It features two interviews, one with someone who has never been to prison but has ideas of what it may be like, and one with someone who has just gotten out of prison after serving eighteen months, who is able to share what it really is like to be locked down.

Did you know that it can cost twenty dollars or more to receive a collect call from a loved one in prison? On Monday December 19th, from 7 - 8 pm, KBOO will take part in a national broadcast of 'Calls from Home' - messages from family and friends to their loved ones who are in prison over the holidays. And from 6:30 to 7, we'll have a call-in forum on the right of prisoners to communicate with their families.

If you would like to record a message to a loved one in Oregon's prisons or juvenile facilities, check the website callsfromhome.org.
