Please join us as we talk with author Damien Linnane this week on Prison Pipeline.  Damien Linnane was born in Sydney, Australia. His debut novel, Scarred, was written by hand while he was in prison, for crimes the sentencing magistrate described as ‘vigilante action’. Since his release from prison he has completed a master’s degree in information studies, and mostly works as an archivist. He is also a portrait artist, and has worked as a freelance journalist and ghostwriter.  We will talk about his recent book as well as his advocacy for Bobby Bostic, a prisoner from the state of Missouri who was sentenced to 241 years in prison for a crime he committed as a minor.  Linnane is involved in a social media campaign to raise awareness about Bostic and his case.

Prison Pipeline is a radio program dedicated to educating the public about the Oregon criminal justice system. Our goal is to present a unique understanding of the criminal justice system, address the root causes of crime, and challenge the status quo. We seek to promote awareness and activism in order to foster a safe, healthy, and just society. Tune in every Monday at 6:30 P.M. to hear our hosts Karen James, Adam Carpinelli, Amy Johnson, Emma Lugo, Doug McVay and Isabelle Sinclar explore the Oregon justice system with a variety of guests.
