PRODUCED BY STEPH BECKETT

Reentry is the process reacclimatizing to life outside of prison, once someone is released. That process can be different for different people, and it can definitely be unique for someone who has been in prison for most of his or her life. There are numerous obstacles for reentry: everything from foreign technology to applying for jobs.

In this episode, we meet José Saldana. He’s 66 years old and was released from prison in January after serving 38 years inside. For the past few months, he’s been learning to adapt to life in New York City, and life out of prison.
