Today we welcome Michael Santos onto the Felony Friday show. When Michael was twenty-three years old he was sentenced to forty-five-years in prison for drug trafficking. With credit and good behavior he was released after serving twenty-six years. During his incarceration he published several books, earned his bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and built a significant savings through publishing and trading stocks. Within three weeks after his release from prison he was hired as an adjunct professor at San Francisco State University. Since his release Michael has focused his energy on teaching lessons that empower the incarcerated to live a life of relevance before, during, and after confinement. One way Michael does this is through the Earning Freedom Podcast and his brand new show Success After Prison.
Michael was previously a guest on the Lions of Liberty podcast with Marc Clair back on episode 93 and John Odermatt appeared on Michael’s Earning Freedom Podcast last year.
What we talked about on the show:
– Michael shares how he was able to change his mindset while in prison and offers some advice for those currently serving time in prison so they can set themselves up for success upon release.
– Michael and John discuss criminal justice reforms and speculate if society has progressed to the point where we’ll see a stop to the locking up non-violent drug offenders.
– Michael talks about his passions and shares a new project that he is launching this week! Be sure to check out Michael’s new show Success After Prison. It is broadcast in both video and podcast form. In addition, Michael has burned episodes on CDs and is distributing them directly into the prison population.
