  2. Death in Illinois Prisons: He Didn’t Have a Death Sentence, But That’s What He Got

    For the last year, Shannon Heffernan has been trying to figure out how and why people in Illinois prisons are dying.

    She found that the state wasn’t keeping basic records. This meant that not only the public, but sometimes also the families of prisoners couldn’t learn even the simplest details about how their loved one died. This story focuses on two deaths in a single family, showing the emotional strain families feel when they can’t learn about their loved one’s death and the extreme medical negligence and violation of basic rights happening in the prison medical system.

    Death In Illinois Prisons: He Didn’t Have a Death Sentence, But That’s What He Got was produced by Shannon Heffernan and edited by Rob Wildeboer for WBEZ.

  4. No Feeling Is Final

    Usually when we talk about suicide we say those four magic words: "Just ask for help." But Honor Eastly knows it’s not that simple.

    Usually when we talk about suicide we say those four magic words: "Just ask for help." But Honor Eastly knows it’s not that simple. She’s been there and back, and now has years of phone recordings and diary entries, from the inside. These recordings form the basis of this podcast, No Feeling Is Final , a show for anyone who’s ever wondered if life is worth living. And for anyone trying to better understand their friend, partner, or kid, who’s wrestled with these feelings themselves. At times heartbreaking and desperate but also darkly funny and charming, No Feeling Is Final is a story of difference, identity, and why we should stay alive.

    No Feeling Is Final was written by Honor Eastly, with executive producer Joel Werner, producer Alice Moldovan, writer Graham Panther, and sound engineer Russell Stapleton. Created at ABC Audio Studios under the guidance of Managing Editor, Kellie Riordan.

    An emotional dive into the personal impact of the false missile alert that was sent out across Hawaii.

From panic and fear to acceptance and joy, Snap Judgment explores the emotional impact of people confronting death and nuclear disaster.

  6. The Return

    Javier Zamora was born in El Salvador and his grandparents still live there. But visiting them didn’t feel like the home he once knew.

    Javier Zamora is an award-winning Salvadoran poet based in California. He published his book Unaccompanied in 2017 about his journey (with a coyote) at the age of nine to reunite with his parents in the US. In June 2018, Javier had no choice but to return to El Salvador for the first time in almost 20 years, since leaving as a child. Javier’s TPS, or Temporary Protected Status, that allowed him to live and work in the US was suddenly under threat of being revoked by the Trump administration. And so he returned in an attempt to apply for a new visa, without a guarantee that he would be able to come back to his life in the US.

    The Return was produced by Sayre Quevedo, with editors Marlon Bishop and Sophia Paliza-Carre for NPR’s Latino USA .
