As part of our “In My Experience” series spotlighting the personal stories of our listeners, we talk with a panel of former prisoners about their crimes, their experience inside prison and their struggles to make it on the outside.
The "In My Experience" series is produced with help from the Public Insight Network.

Carl Irons, former prisoner who served 24 years for second-degree murder
