This week's guest is Darren Smith. Read more about his experience in his book about his incarceration "Behind the Walls"
Well educated. Rewarding career. World traveler. An all-around well-rounded individual. These are a few of the notions that come to mind when friends, family, peers and acquaintances speak about Darren Smith.
On March 15th 2019, Darren Smith became inmate #1474625, as he was sentenced to 60 days in the Jennifer Road Detention Center in Annapolis, MD for a DUI conviction. Suddenly, Darren goes from living in a world without limitation, full of promise and adventure, to being in a state of absolute confinement. All the while, his career, and the resources he's worked to attain up to this point, are hanging in the balance.
30 For 30: The Writings Behind the Wall is the personal account of each day Darren spent being incarcerated. Revealing, compelling, and insightful, 30 For 30 explores it all, from Darren's daily rituals, interactions with other inmates, analysis of stories, books and current events, his time spent as a jail employee, and much more. Taken directly from the journal he kept while inside (and expanded upon once released), this intimate, extremely detailed and introspective account of Darren's time behind bars provides a front row seat to watch as he navigates, and ultimately perseveres, through the most difficult moment of his life.
Today's guest is Comptroller Peter Franchot. The Comptroller, who is running for Governor of Maryland, recognizes some Annapolis community heroes.

The Comptroller mentions that he would like to see alcohol delivery continue after the pandemic!

Today's guest is Monica Alvarado of Bread and Butter Kitchen in Eastport. She discusses the #feedannearundel initiative and how it is a win-win-win for Anne Arundel. This idea came from the organization Anne Arundel Communities Together (ACT). ACT is working in conjunction with a cohort of restaurants across the county and they have partnered with the Anne Arundel County Partnership for Children, Youth, & Families to address food insecurity in our community. The idea is simple: pay restaurants across Anne Arundel County to prepare healthy, nutritious meals for those in our community in need. While this is by no means a profitable venture, the end results create a win-win-win: We are keeping people fed, keeping people employed, and keeping businesses afloat.
