Welcome to this blitz mini-season of The Women, where host Rose Reid investigates the runoff election that has the world watching Georgia, and the women who make all the difference.
Atlanta native Josie Duffy Rice is the host of the podcast Justice in America. She is also a friend, new mom, ultimate dance buddy, and a fierce advocate. Josie is a writer, lawyer, and President of The Appeal, a platform for journalist watchdogs investigating the criminal justice system in niche areas and at local levels.
Half a million people in our home state of Georgia are under correctional control—the largest rate of any state in the union. It affects a lot of Georgians, and it's a hot topic for a lot of Georgia voters.
In this interview, Rose and Josie talk about what defunding the police really means, how the election on January 5th could impact 100,000 prisoners in Georgia, and how facing the horrors of the criminal justice system every day paradoxically gives Josie hope.
