- Pelican Bay Prison and the Rise of Long-Term Solitary Confinement
- By: Keramet Reiter
- Narrated by: C.S.E Cooney
- Length: 9 hrs and 57 mins
Originally meant to be brief and exceptional, solitary confinement in US prisons has become long-term and common. Prisoners spend 23 hours a day in featureless cells, with no visitors or human contact for years on end, and they are held entirely at administrators' discretion. Keramet Reiter tells the history of one "supermax", California's Pelican Bay State Prison, whose extreme conditions recently sparked a statewide hunger strike by 30,000 prisoners.
