For those of you who might be interested in a male take on the prison system, prison issues, and the human condition, "Ricky's Blog" is a good one. Richard Atkinson has spent a substantial portion of his life in Canada's prisons. He co-created a really interesting TV program called Prison TV in the 90's. It aired in Kingston, ON. And is one of the most interesting, really amazing projects I have seen in a Canadian context which gave an honest look into the prison and which included prisoners and their families. Ricky and Brian have made portions of those shows available on Ricky's blog.
