This podcast was produced as coursework for a class on prisoners’ justice led by Profs Jin Haritaworn and Syrus Marcus Ware at York University, and field supervised by Sena Hussein, Communications and Resource Development Coordinator at PASAN and Lead Editor at Cell Count. It discusses barriers to phone access in prisons and institutions in Canada, just one of many forms of harm and injustice which are built into the Prison Industrial Complex. Erin Baird, Kenley Ferris and Sabika Zaidi discuss topics of phone access, the corporations which operate these phones, and Bell Canada’s ‘Bell Let’s Talk’ campaign. The barriers to phone access discussed throughout our podcast have serious consequences for people on the inside and their families.
