Profiting Off Prisons with The Marshall Project’s Joe Neff

Description

Gaby tackles her latest research obsession -- private prisons. Who is making a profit from locking people up? The Marshall Project’s Joe Neff joins the show to talk about the mistreatment of prisoners in the time of COVID-19, who makes money off federal, state and private prisons, the ways prisoners are nickeled and dimed for everything (from soap to slippers to shoes), and the ways we can better rehabilitate people who have committed crimes.     Read more about the criminal justice system at TheMarshalProject.org.
