about this episode
It’s one of Jason’s favorite episodes. In the studio is Chris Redlitz, Partner at Transmedia Capital and Founder of The Last Mile (TLM), a program that teaches prisoners technology and entrepreneurship to gain essential job skills and prevent recidivism. Joining as well is Last Mile grad Kenyatta Leal, former San Quentin inmate of 19 years and current Manager of Campus Services at RocketSpace. Chris shares his inspiration for The Last Mile, its incredible success, and ambitious & promising future, while Kenyatta describes in-depth the harsh realities of prison life, along with the critical skills/lessons he learned at TLM and the euphoric moment of experiencing freedom again. The three dive into many different riveting discussions, including the alarming incarceration rates in the U.S., the pathology of the broken the prison/punishment system, how programs like The Last Mile give great hope and purpose, and a vision for a better future. You don’t want to miss this!
