Episode No. 67: Ted Eismeier, Fight Crime


If you are checking this out via iPad or other device and cannot see the audio player, click here to listen — or just go ahead and subscribe. You know you want to.

Ted Eismeier works at Fight Crime: Invest In Kids, and as this podcast returns from a two-week or so hiatus — I had to move 1,200 miles guys, so sue me — we chat about juvenile justice, youth offenders, how to deal with the big-picture issues, some of Fight Crime’s initiatives for the remainder of 2012, and more. It’s an interesting discussion, and at only 18 minutes, it’s eminently consumable for a commute.

You know that whole argument/urban myth about third grade reading scores and prison building? We address that here. (It’s also addressed well in this article.)

Fight Crime: Invest in Kids does have a YouTube Channel, featuring one of the guys from The Wire speaking on these issues, if you’d like to check that out.

What’s This All About?

This is a blog and podcast series about the work we all do: the highs, the lows, the effectiveness, the intrigue, the models, the double speak, and the passion. The point is to have discussions with people in those fields about their life and experiences. And hey, sometimes the stories might be funny, too. In the spring of 2013, the new posts started to fade, but you can find them all on iTunes.
