Ex-Offender Still Waiting for His Second Chance

Sep 2, 2016

Second chances are often talked about in relation to conversations about prison reform, but rarely do we hear from those who actually need them. This hour, we take a look at Connecticut’s “Second Chance Society” through the eyes of a former inmate

Plus, do you know your Fourth Amendment rights? In the next installment of our Know Your Rights series, we explore the history and relevance of the "search and seizure" amendment.

And finally, the New England News Collaborative has been working on a five-part series exploring new ideas in energy storage and production in the region. We learn more about it from NENC Executive Editor John Dankoksy. 

GUESTS:

  • Adam Daniels - Bloomfield resident, student, and prison reform advocate
  • Tejas Bhatt - Assistant Public Defender from Hartford, Connecticut
  • John Dankosky - Executive Editor of the New England News Collaborative and host of NEXT
