Stephen B. Walker
Bryan Miller

Host Bryan Miller chats with a fellow podcast host, Reason 55’s Step B. Walker, a retired correctional peace officer in the state of California. Stephen brings 30+ years of knowledge as a correctional officer and various director roles within the California Correctional Peace Officers Association (CCPOA) to the conversation in this episode of Nation State of Play. He reflects about his employment, tribal politics, and the systemic issues we face in the criminal justice system today. 

Bryan asks Stephen about his employment in the prison industry and unearths the social, political, economic, and health issues that plague one of the world’s toughest jobs. 

Stephen and Bryan further dissect the intersectionality of legal and policy issues that are meshed within the complexities of the correctional industry. If you like what Stephen had to say, be sure to tune in to Reason 55 on Olas Media or wherever else you get your podcasts.
