Pelican Bay UNLOCKED, Episode 4: World On Fire

Kunlyna Tauch, Pelican Bay Scholar

Calls from prison are always poignant. You do what you can to dispel the distance and connect with the thin, tinny voice coming at you over institutional wires. You share lives and days and hopes and fears–even laughter–all within the temporal confines of a 15 minute telephone call. Hopefully, you are able to say what you need before the sixty-second end-of-call warning; there are few things as lonesome as finishing a thought into a disconnected line.

This episode of UNLOCKED is made up entirely of just such calls.
