Ear Hustle Podcast



Sep 11, 2017
འ༔ ཨ༔ ཧ༔ ཤ༔ ས༔ མ༔


Crime podcasts are big business and Ear Hustle (Ear Hustle & Radiotopia/iTunes) gives a new perspective on the genre. It is created, recorded and produced in San Quentin state prison, by Earlonne Woods, who is serving 31 years-to-life and Antwan Williams (15 years), along with Nigel Poor, an artist who works with prisoners. And it is incredible from the first moments, dignified and humorous.

Ear Hustle is prison slang for eavesdropping, and Williams and Woods are determined to show the reality of life inside. “You got all these TV shows, like Prison Break, Orange Is the New Black. They bullshit though! Prison ain’t really like that. We just living life, like everybody else,” they insist.

Each episode has to be approved by the authorities, but the podcast feels uncensored. The rapport between the three creators brings warmth and, even though Woods claims Poor “brings a softer touch to the show”, he is happy to call her out when she brings naive, outside-world analogies to prison life. The first episode is about cellmates and, in a discussion about finding the perfect cellie, she compares it to dating. “It’s not like dating, Nigel,” replies Woods, patiently but firmly.
