Ani DiFranco is one of the most prolific, focused, and issues-oriented songwriters in America today. She joins Nick from her home in New Orleans to discuss and play songs from her latest record. Ani also partnered with musician and activist Zoë Boekbinder on a remarkable project to bring the issue of restorative justice and prison reform to a wider audience through creativity and music. Zoe and formerly incarcerated writer Nathen Jackson-Brown shares their stories of The Prison Music Project’s evolution, and we’ll feature some of the remarkable music that incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people helped create.
