Berkeleyan on The Moth Radio Hour (from Berkeley Daily Planet)

“Tony Cyprien’s personal story of his incarceration…for a gang-related conviction which carried a sentence of 26 years to life…scored a spot on public radio’s popular story-telling show “The Moth Radio Hour,” …air[ing] on public radio stations across the United States. Kate Brubeck helped him develop his material so he might coherently crush 30 years of life change into this five-minute story.”

The full Moth Radio episode that contains his story, which starts about 30 minutes (0:30:57) from the beginning, can be heard online here.
