Maya Schenwar

Maya Schenwar is Truthout's Editor-in-Chief and the author of Locked Down, Locked Out, a fascinating new book about the prison system.

A really fun interview about her career and detours, including time spent farming in Europe at a "center for spiritual wellness."

Maya also opens up about her sister's experiences in the criminal justice system, pregnant women delivering their babies in jail, being pen-pals with Steven Michael Woods, a Texas inmate executed for a crime someone else confessed to and much much more!
