Episode 18: Journalist Chris Hedges, author of Our Class
Welcome to Madang.
Madang is the outdoor living room of the world. Here, we invite you to sit and tune into unreserved, remarkable conversations with renowned authors, leaders, public figures, and scholars on religion, culture, and everything in between.
Here in the eighteenth episode of Madang, I converse with Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Chris Hedges about his new book, Our Class. It is an insightful book about the prison industrial complex and what people of faith should do about it.
We discuss his ordination and prison ministry, his teaching, white liberals in the church, Jesus and insurrection, and the relationship between prison and slaveholders’ manuals. This is an informative discussion on what is happening in our justice system and inside our prisons.
