Welcome! In Fall of 2020, the students of GEOG 478 Social Justice and the City at The University of Washington in Seattle took part in a ten-week course to study the US criminal-legal system, its history, its impacts, and efforts to reform and/or abolish it. The following podcasts, each on a topic chosen by the students, represent the fruits of their labor. Each student listed below has given their consent to have their podcast shared with the general public. Enjoy!
