Mary Cohen, PhD, an associate professor at the University of Iowa with a joint position in the College of Education and the School of Music, was recently a guest on Music Matters, a podcast produced by the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).
Host Sara Mohr-Pietsch talked to Cohen, who co-authored the book Music-Making in U.S. Prisons: Listening to Incarcerated Voices, to Robin Harris, from 'Finding Rhythms', an organization running song-writing workshops with prisoners in the UK, and to two former inmates who've benefited from these programmes as part of their process of rehabilitation back into society.
