Life Jolt

About the Show

Life Jolt - prison slang for a life sentence - examines the lives of women navigating Canada’s correctional system. Our team gained unprecedented access to the Grand Valley Institution prison - the federal pen for women in Ontario - for a full year. We followed women going into prison for the first time, spoke with lifers who have been there for years, and parolees as they left. Hosted by Rosemary Green, a former inmate herself, Life Jolt will focus on individual women’s stories to explore the realities of prison life and a wide range of issues including parenting behind bars, segregation, the over-representation of Indigenous women, addiction, trauma and the many obstacles of reintegration.
