Teleway 411

English, Old Time Radio, 1 seasons, 5 episodes, 5 hours 20 minutes
The U.S. prison system disappears people from society, effectively dissolving their individuality and erasing their humanity. Teleway 411 works against this insidious practice by traveling through space and time to connect with guests serving sentences in the realm of brick and barbed wire. The Teleway is a vehicle for human connection, providing an outlet for those who have been silenced to share their stories. Our heart-to-heart conversations shed light about the reality of life inside the prison system, directly from those experiencing it. Dispatching from the Telegraph and Broadway terminal in Oakland, we transport the stories of queer artists in prison across the portal of time and space.

The book - and his interview - detail the abuse Sirbrian endured as a child that resulted in his development of a personality disorder. Sirbrian’s story of acceptance of his mental health challenges, his queer identity, and his alter ego Devon is a heart-wrenching, inspiring end to our first season.Support the show
