Hosted by: The On the Count Collective
The mission of On The Count is to identify and examine local, state, national and international criminal and social justice issues directed towards reducing the inappropriate reliance on punishment and incarceration as the primary response to social and economic inequality. The program serves as a clearinghouse of information focusing on, but not limited to, questions of race, class, gender, culture, economic development, punishment, sentencing, drug policy, de-incarceration, pre and post release programs, education, community resettlement and the human and fiscal implications of each.
On The Count is the only program on radio that is produced and hosted entirely by formerly incarcerated persons. The first program aired February 23, 2002.
The team that produces On The Count is:
Rob (Big Rob) Sims, Senior Producer and Audio Engineer
Andre (Imani) Ward, Associate Producer
Steven (Humble) Mangual, Latino Affairs Producer
Eddie Ellis, now an Ancestor, remains our visionary Executive Producer.
