In this episode of the Lions of Liberty Podcast, I welcome in Michael G. Santos of the Earning Freedom Podcast! Michael details how he successfully rejoined society after 26 years in federal prison. Michael explains how he landed in jail with a 45 year sentence for selling cocaine, and how he came up with his 3 part plan, which required that he educate himself, contribute to society, and build a support network. He explains how that plan empowered him and allowed him to return to society with his dignity in tact and opportunities to lead a meaningful, relevant life. Michael and I discuss why the U.S. is committed to mass incarceration, and how meaningful reforms can be made in the U.S. prison system to allow prisoners to empower themselves and truly earn their freedom.
