In Episode 25 of the Fountain Street Church podcast Listening At The Fire, host Virginia Anzengruber shares the panel discussion from the Summer Screen Club event focusing on the Netflix TV series Orange Is The New Black. Created by Jenji Kohan and based on teh book by Piper Kerman, OITNB is a dramedy that takes a look at the lives of the women of Litchfield Correctional Facility, and the escalating injustices perpetrated by the privatized prison complex. 

Virginia is joined by panelists Sarah Vesely (director of The Wealthy Theatre) and Shirley Griffin (co-founder of the Thriller! Chiller! Film Festival) to discuss the story theory, visual structure, and overall world of Orange Is The New Black.

Our nonprofit sponsor for this event was Citizens for Prison Reform, an organization whose "current focus is bringing unity, support and knowledge to families and supporters of prisoners, along with raising awareness among members of the Michigan legislature of the urgent need for reform of our current corrections system. The ongoing lack of oversight and accountability within the Michigan Department of Corrections, which has led to numerous human rights violations within the justice system needs to be addressed."
