Join Callum & Craig this week as they sit down, 'behind bars' and have a chat about the institutional space of the prison.  The duo consider important issues such as the history of prisons - how did they begin and are they what they are meant to be today? They also take a look at the benefits of the system as well as the inherent flaws.  How is gender impacted in prison? Moreover, what about race?  How about the impact of mental health in prison? Do prisons work as they should, or is an overhaul needed? Curious?  Come on in and take a seat - find out all the answers to the above and more - only on the Therapy Files.
