Kite Line

Kite Line is a weekly radio program and podcast that focuses on issues in the prison system and beyond. On the inside, a message is called a kite: whispered words, a note passed hand to hand, or a request submitted to guards for medical care. Illicit or not, sending a kite means trusting that other people will pass it farther along, until it reaches its destination. We make this show to pass along words, across the prison walls.
