On today's show, we spoke with CAROLINE GIAMMANCO and NICOLE MALANE:
From Her Amazon Page:
"Corruption doesn't happen by accident. It's groomed to exist. “You will have people tell you to beware of the inmates. They can be silver-tongued devils who will try to manipulate you—and some will try. I’m telling you right now, though, that you need to be just as worried about your coworkers as you are the inmates. There are plenty of employees who will do and say things to you that they shouldn’t. Sometimes the only way to tell the difference between the inmates and employees is by the color of their uniform.”
Officer Lonnie Duncan’s ominous warning proves all too true as Caroline Giammanco enters the seedy world of prison.Death threats, retaliation, and corruption become the backdrop of her life, when she spends two-and-a-half years working within the dark underbelly of a maximum-security men’s prison. The dangers lurking inside the death fences—the term used for the electrified fences surrounding the compound—force her to embark on a journey from naïve school teacher to whistleblower and political activist, after she finds the most dangerous threats come from those we count on to protect us."

"Many of us can name a mentor – whether a teacher, coach or neighbor - who believed in us and helped us unlock our full potential.
At Child Safe Michigan, which operates the only mentoring program solely focused on foster youth in Michigan, we see every day the positive impact a mentor can have on a child.
Children in foster care are among the most at-risk populations. A staggering 75% of them have experienced trauma ranging from neglect to severe abuse by those closest to them. In fact, foster youth experience a higher rate of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder than American combat veterans, and many of them struggle with depression, anxiety, and self-doubt.
Children enter foster care through no fault of their own. Though they might have been removed from unsafe conditions, they are scared to find themselves placed with strangers (albeit well-meaning) in unfamiliar foster homes, and are insecure as to what the future holds.
Growing up is hard even in the best of circumstances. Children in foster care not only have to contend with common growing pains, but they have to deal with separation from their families and friends, attending new schools, residing in new homes, and, hardest of all, dealing with the abuse/neglect that led to their placement in foster care. They feel lost, alone, and unsure of who they can trust.And GREAT music selected just for you!
Thank you for stopping in! Enjoy!
