Kite Line Radio is a weekly radio program that focuses on issues in the prison system and its effects on prisoners, family members, and diverse communities across America.


Behind the prison walls, a message is called a "kite" - whispered words, a note passed hand to hand, a request submitted to the guards for medical care.  Illicit or not, sending a kite means trusting that other people will bear it further along, until it reaches its destination.  Here on Kite Line, we hope to share these words, across the prison walls.


We share the stories of those affected by incarceration, explain the ins-and-outs of how prison functions, and share the history of how prison has developed throughout the years. A mix of storytelling, interviews, and education- we've been creating new content every week for over two years. Please help us keep going!


Kite Line episodes premiere each week on WFHB, Fridays at 5:30 EST.  We also air on ten other stations around the country.
