Life with Fire

Exploitation, Transformation and the Paradox of Incarcerated Firefighting with Dr. Lindsey Feldman

Episode Summary

In this episode, we speak with anthropologist Dr. Lindsey Raisa Feldman about her research on incarcerated fire crews in Arizona. Lindsey actually worked on the ground with these crews—and despite her assertion that she wasn't a very good firefighter, she did come away with some important insights about the nature of incarcerated firefighting, as well as a few profound experiences of her own.
