Behind Gray Walls




“Behind Gray Walls” is a new podcast featuring stories from inmates housed at the Old Idaho Penitentiary and is available wherever you get your podcasts. Behind Gray Walls is inspired by Patrick Charles Murphy, a former inmate who served sixteen years at the ISP for Murder in the 1st Degree. While incarcerated he wrote a book titled Behind Gray Walls about his time in prison. Each week, Skye and Anthony will explore inmates whose crimes led them to serve time at the Old Idaho Penitentiary. Their history is explored in depth and compared to corrections topics faced in communities today.
