70 Million is back for Season 2 — 70 million adults in the United States have a criminal record. How did we get here and what do we do now? The open-source podcast goes deeper this season into how people, neighborhoods, counties, and cities are breaking cycles of incarceration by trying bold solutions--starting with the local jail. Find episodes, toolkits, and other resources at, and hear us on Apple Podcasts, RadioPublic or wherever you listen. (70 Million is produced by Lantigua Williams & Co. and funded by the Safety and Justice Challenge at the MacArthur Foundation.)

Dude talks to a lady has reached episode 100, with comic Janet Hyde inviting (mostly) male comics to tell her a joke about women or gender, and having “surprisingly intellectual conversations with men that really need to happen.” (Blubrry)
