Nov 5, 2019

At sixteen years of age, Reginald Dwayne Betts went to prison for carjacking. Decades later, Betts is a celebrated poet and graduate of Yale Law School. But, like many ex-offenders, the consequences of those teenage mistakes have followed him for years.

This hour, we sit down with Betts to talk about his third collection of poetry, Felon.
