Episode 110: Incarceration, re-entry and resilience – with activist and podcaster Bea Spadacini
Bea Spadacini is an activist and writer whose goal is to promote peace and justice by elevating conversations about issues that are often underrepresented in the mainstream media. Originally from Italy, she has lived in the United States for over twenty years and has traveled to Africa and Asia as part of her communications work with humanitarian organizations. Currently she is the Executive Producer and Co-Host of the One in Four Podcast, which focuses on the re-entry process of people who have experienced incarceration.
On this episode, you will hear Bea talk about:
- How her work with Amnesty International made her aware of the issues of mass incarceration and police force against people of color in the U.S., particularly against Black and Latino men – and how it led her to create the One in Four Podcast to highlight the many issues facing formerly incarcerated people who are re-entering society
- The stories of resilience, humanity and community support that she shares on the One in Four Podcast -- and the importance of sharing these stories now
- The challenges of running, funding and marketing an independent podcast
