Political Prisoner Radio is live every Sunday and it is a program that seeks to educate the public on the individual cases of political prisoners and prisoners of war being held by the United States government, many for decades under torturous conditions. It features former political prisoners, advocates, family members and organizations that work to free these individuals and meet their needs while still imprisoned. The program also discusses current events in the historical context of political repression and social conditions that existed and still exist within the United States of America today.
