Talking about the places we call home.

Nigel Poor and Earlonne Woods, or E for short, co-host and produce Ear Hustle from inside the walls of San Quentin. But recently, Earlonne was released from prison. After 21 years, E is no longer incarcerated. Moving forward, the podcast will also follow his transition back into "the outside."

Despite this major change, the team will continue to bring us stories that give a clear view of the American prison system. Ear Hustle is a worthwhile addition to your podcast library as it crosses a divide and allows inmates to share their struggles and successes from inside concrete walls. I'm looking forward to their next chapter.

Invisibilia - Living outside the spaces that are technologically pre-determined for us.

Every Little Thing - Is your cat trying to kill you? Learn how to spot the tell-tale signs of a psychopath.

Ear Hustle - Nigel and Earlonne record together for the first time outside the walls of San Quentin. After 21 years, Earlonne is no longer incarcerated. His sentence was commuted. 

Death, Sex, and Money - Living alone has its perks. You can eat what you want, wear what you want, and listen to show tunes as loud as you want. You can let your dishes pile up for days—or you can be a total neat freak. There's no one to stop you. But there's also no one to help foot the bill.

By The Book - Jolenta and Kristen live by Marie Kondo's uber popular minimalist guide, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up. The book tells them to throw out belongings, fold socks into pinwheels, and say thank you garbage!  Can they do it? Will it change their lives? Did Kristen throw out her passport?

The Secret Life of Canada - Is it true Toronto is the city Canada loves to hate? It seems to have all started when it was time to pick the Canada's capital.
