Amazing podcast

This podcast is very educational and gives the view of what is like to a correctional officer, it also gives you an idea of what happens with a new correctional officer. It will also show you don’t need any other law enforcement past to become a correctional officer. It has shown it has given up to date information with new training course for officers. It was very entertaining and completely deserves five stars!

Super Interesting

This podcast is really great at getting a look into things I would have never really thought about before. I heavily enjoyed their Prison Guards episode. It felt real and raw, but the sound effects and transitions made it super entertaining and I didn’t feel like it dragged on too long. The information felt legitimate, and after looking into the subject after hearing the episode, everything matched up. This podcast definitely has a new listener, I’m really happy I was introduced to it!

Great Podcast!

This podcast is very interesting and entertaining because it sheds light on the lives and experiences of correctional officers. This podcast is perfect for a group of people interested in the academics of correctional institutions or for anyone else who is interested in knowing more about the correctional system because it is very reliable and gives accurate information.

Awesome

I listed to the prison guard diary podcast and it was extremely well made. Listening to the experiences that the prison officers and what they are thinking about as something happens is very creative and a great way to really know and learn about their jobs. This is definitely a good podcast to listen to if you want to be involved in anyway or work in a prison.

Please Improve Titles

I absolutely love this podcast and all of the interesting stories you shareI really wish though, that you would make more of an effort to make it clear in either the title or description that an episode is a reupload. I got so excited that the 4/2/19 upload was a NEW working tapes and was a little disappointed that it was not. All it would take is a “rebroadcast” I the title or description

Could have been good

Definitely could have been good if the hosts didn’t approach every topic with their SJW crap.

Well written excellent snapshots of people and history

Listen to the Nelson Mandela at 100 episode and that should be enough to convince you.I've listened to Radio Diaries for years and always found the episodes are illuminating and worth waiting for.

Must listen

Intriguing human interest stories from the voices of the actors of the event themselves. Fantastically edited and well told, this podcast is a must listen.
