In the first of hopefully many bonus episodes of the podcast, we interviewed Jean Casella, co-director of solitary confinement news and advocacy organization, Solitary Watch. We chatted with Jean about the depiction of solitary confinement in Orange is the New Black, how solitary can alter the brain, and so much more. Consider this the building blocks of an education in solitary confinement.

You can read more about Solitary Watch at SolitaryWatch.com, or you can check out their book, Hell is a Very Small Place: Voices From Solitary Confinement, out now wherever books are sold. We highly recommend it for those looking for a more detailed picture of life in solitary confinement.
