PODCAST: While the America Slept. Wil Bowers talks about disproportionate incarceration.
Business owner and friend of the show, Wil Bowers (www.wilbowers.wearelegalshield.com) joins us to talk about the alarming rate of how black, brown and the poor are jailed. He references a study he conducted in the 80s, working at WBZ in Boston. Here, he interviewed prisoners and found out about the inner workings of jails in this country, with reasons for the highest recidivism rate in the world. Wil is also a working actor, with over 40 credits, including Scandal and General Hospital.
