The Other Side of the Law

Podcasting: it’s for cops AND robbers! (OK, an inmate, not a robber — nothing wrong with being a little dramatic, eh?)  In our fictional journal called “You Won’t Believe Who’s Podcasting Now!”, we have another entry: it’s from the Dagupan City Jail in the Philippines, where a technically inclined inmate has started a blog and now a podcast about what he and his fellow inmates are doing to better themselves and their community.  The blog and podcast cover topics such as “rehabilitation of their facilities like the visitor’s waiting shed, cooperative store, guard house, basketball court, revival of their saloon, repair of their infirmary …” and other tidbits about how these inmates bide their time. Some of the podcast is in computer-generated English, but some is in Filipino — so you’ll just have to guess what it’s about (unless you have Filipino skills).  Regardless, kudos to inmate Bill who made this podcast happen for using his jailtime wisely (with podcasting)!
