From inside the walls of the Old Idaho Penitentiary comes a podcast about Idaho history, true crime, and the stories of the inmates who lived here, written and produced by two employees of the Idaho State Historical Society, Anthony and Skye. Named after a biography written by inmate Patrick Charles Murphy, Behind Gray Walls is a podcast that will bring humanity to the stories you may have heard while visiting the Old Idaho Penitentiary, and some that you most certainly have not.

Each episode, you will hear the stories of two inmates, one male and one female. In a conversation between the hosts, the inmates’ lives, crimes, and time behind bars will be discussed in a way that will bring a new dimension to the Old Idaho Penitentiary and the over 13,000 men and 217 women who lived here, even if it was for a short amount of time.

Copper & Heat challenges the exclusionary systems that cooks and chefs have been upholding for generations. Katy and her husband Ricardo create and produce this James Beard Award winning podcast exploring the unspoken rules and traditions of restaurant kitchens through the stories of people that work in them. They focus on issues that underpin and enable exclusion in the restaurant industry that many don’t question. Why are professional kitchens organized the way they are? What makes a great chef? Who gets the most media attention and awards?

The restaurant industry is at a point where a lot of ground work has been laid for change. But in order for change to happen, more conversations about gender, race, and privilege in the kitchen need to take place. Copper & Heat is focused on starting conversations like that with the people that are working through these issues in restaurant kitchens every day.
