In Fall 2018, we invite you to travel the sound waves and across the country with us for 70 Million, a new documentary podcast about criminal justice reform from Lantigua Williams & Co.

In season one, premiering on August 27, we chronicle the toxic impact of local jails on people and communities across the country, and what neighbors and local leaders are doing about it. 

Over the course of ten episodes, host Mitzi Miller takes you on a sound-rich, journalistic trek into jails and related institutions and how they feed and reinforce the interwoven criminal justice systems in the country.

Inclusive reporting from skilled, independent radio producers brings us to places we haven’t been and perspectives we may have missed, giving us highly authentic storytelling and audio-forward stories fit for curious ears and public radio programming.

I feel proud of the work that I’m doing with this campaign to try to bail out women. So it’s not only helping me, but it’s helping the people that I was formerly incarcerated with. It’s giving me a job, but also help uplift the women I was just in the struggle with.
— T, from 70 Million’s episode about the movement to end cash bail in Philly.
