North Gate Radio is a weekly radio show produced by the Graduate School of Journalism at UC Berkeley. Listen live each Thursday on KALX 90.7 FM at 9 AM. Past shows (before 2016) are available on our former site.
On this week’s show, we’re talking about second chances. First, Michelle Pitcher takes a look at a career training program for California inmates re-entering society. Then, Natalia Gurevich tells us about Cambodian immigrants to the US facing deportation and what they’re doing to fight back. Finally, Hannah Ricker finds out whether our clothing really gets a second chance when we donate it to a secondhand store.
