Together, they peel back the layers of the notorious prison, Alcatraz, from its reputation as an impenetrable fortress to the infamous 1962 escape. Sheryl and Michael explore the psychology of Alcatraz inmates and discuss the prison’s impact on rehabilitation. With firsthand accounts and meticulous research, they offer a nuanced view of the inmates’ ingenuity and the prison’s security lapses.
