Embroidery Felon
by Jonathan Mitchell (Studio 360, 2003)
Back when Ray Matterson had a coke habit, he tried to rob a store with a toy gun. He was caught and sentenced to seven and a half years in prison. One year into his sentence, he unexpectedly found redemption in a needle... but not the kind you might imagine.

Forgiveness
by Michael O'Halloran and Margo Van Sluytman with Neil Sandell (Outfront, CBC, 2009)
Margo Van Sluytman's father was killed when she was a young girl. Almost thirty years later, the murderer wrote her a letter to apologize. Was that acceptable? Was that enough? Margo and the murderer she would come to know tell the story.

Survivors
by Claire Schoen (Making Contact, 2009)
Claire Schoen brings us the voices of nine survivors of solitary confinement who describe a place in prison rarely talked about.

King's Candy
by the Kitchen Sisters (All Things Considered, 2005)
Against all odds, in solitary confinement, Robert King Wilkerson started cooking. And the food he made, made everyone's life a little sweeter.
