The Hardest Stepback to show
A Call to Action with Jason Flom
Jason Flom is a music executive, founding board member of the Innocence Project, and host of the Wrongful Conviction podcast. Formerly the chairman and CEO at Atlantic Records and responsible for launching stars including Katy Perry and Lorde, Jason found a passion for criminal justice reform after reading about Steven Lennon, a New York man sentenced to decades behind bars for a non-violent, first-offense cocaine possession charge. He has since become an “obsessive advocate” for first offenders and those wrongfully convicted, helping found or lead multiple social justice organizations.
Chris and Coss talk with Jason about supporting those who have been incarcerated and discuss the power of storytelling to impact reform.
