The 12th episode of the Inside-Out Podcast features Christopher Lee Lamoureux, who served 14 months in prison in British Columbia, Canada. Chris shares about his time before, during and after incarceration, and how his family, friends and culture served as a support network. While incarcerated, Chris had the opportunity to take part in the Vancouver Island University Inside-Out Program. Chris reflects on what this program meant for him, and how it impacted his life upon reentry. "To any folks who may listen to this, look for opportunities to support incarcerated folks. By helping to deliver a sense of purpose and meaning, it breathes life into hopeless situations. Thank you to all those who have made this a life's mission and a life's purpose. It's definitely changed the trajectory in my life. And I believe it's the case for anybody who takes this experience. It's pretty special." - Christopher Lamoureux
This interview was conducted by guest interviewer Morgan Mifflin, and Inside-Out intern and recent graduate of Temple University.
