WonkCast Episode 6: Prison Reform

Tune in to this week’s episode of Wonkcast to get an in-depth look at the status of rehabilitation in our federal prisons and possible reforms aimed at reducing recidivism.  Daniel Landsman, GW MPP candidate and Policy Associate at Families Against Mandatory Minimums, joins our regular contributors to offer his personal take on these issues. We also dive headfirst into topics such as whether Chicago is ripping off the plot of ‘Minority Report,’ Dennis Rodman’s befuddling trips to North Korea, and troop levels in Afghanistan.
