Gray Area tells the stories of people who are dealing with this whole thing we call justice, people who are trying to get beyond labels of right and wrong or good and evil to get to something bigger – redemption. Gray Area deals with some pretty heavy stuff, but it also lightens up when you least expect it. True stories about justice.

Reynaldo en Yaquilandia

Thank you for such a moving, well crafted audio documentary of my friend, Reynaldo's, journey. I work with indigenous people who are working hard to heal historical trauma and learn to live life not based in fear and anger. I am Chicana whose origins include the P'urepecha. My grandmother's stories relay the fear of Mexicans and 'Americanos' (white people). I have white relatives so this work of reconciliation is hard but liberating. Thank you for the oportunity to reflect on the complexity of Chicanismo. - Elisa Marina Alvarado


Two episodes in and this podcast is at the top of my queue. Both episodes explore the complexity of criminal acts and what follows. Both reveal the humanity inherent in all--even perpetrators of heinous crimes. Julie is a masterful interviewer- we either feel as though we're in the room with her or forget she's there as she sits back and lets her guests tell their stories. At the end of both episodes, my mind was more open, my heart softer. I'm happy that there are people thoughtfully guiding us through our own questions about the area in-between. PS Someone needs to find George B so he can edit his spot-on review. Spot-on but for the the fact that "Excellent" is 5 stars, not one. George! Where are you? Come back and fix this!!! :D


For years, Julie Reynolds has established herself as one of the best reporters on organized crime in California and possibly the country. Here Reynolds manages to thread together moving stories, vignettes and lessons from a broad concept: Justice, particularly Restorative Justice. These stories are difficult within the freedom of historical fiction - to tie it to face, place and time as a journalist is even more difficult.
This work should be required for educators, students and community members working for restorative justice as well as reporters and writers engaging this subject.
