The Last Mile Radio is a platform to tell our stories and get the word out about who we are, what’s going on, and the level of expertise that exists behind the walls of San Quentin.
The Last Mile partnered with SiriusXM, one of America’s largest broadcasting companies. SiriusXM provides satellite radio and online radio services to millions of listeners.
It is amazing to have one of the most renowned broadcasting systems in the country team with us to help fulfill our mission to change the narrative of those who live behind bars.
We are the source of the stories, but we also wrote the platform to tell our stories. Stories of inspiration and redemption.
In creating The Last Mile Radio, the TLM Works engineers considered using Node with a Keystone framework or a React front-end. But ultimately, our engineers decided to use WordPress with a Genesis theme.
We were able to be creative and used a REST api, and AJAX to make calls to the WordPress database.
TLM Radio tracks the success stories of incarcerated men as they go through the program, parole, and return to their communities. We took great pride in creating this site and in having the opportunity to share our stories with you.
