Episode 2: The Evolution of Slavery in America. Let's take a good look at America's privatized prison system. We make up five percent of the world’s population but we house twenty-five percent of its prisoners. Most the inmates are in for non-violent crimes and forced to work for minuscule wages. Meanwhile the prison lobbyists are pushing for stricter minimum sentences and more federal regulations. Let us entertain you as we catch you up on the biggest industry in America and how they keep convincing you it’s a good idea.
