Cruel and Unusual: A Podcast on Punishment

By Zachary Baron Shemtob

To listen to an audio podcast, mouse over the title and click Play. Open iTunes to download and subscribe to podcasts.


This podcast explores why and how people are punished in the United States and throughout the world, ranging from criminal punishment to disciplining children. Each episode features a fifteen minute interview with a punisher (e.g., a judge or parent), someone punished (e.g., convicts or children), or those who study punishment (e.g., academics). Topics include: Why do we punish at all? How has punishment changed over time? How does punishment differ in other countries? The podcast is always informative, entertaining, and, when the need arises, even a bit irreverent. Listen up...or be punished.
