The Indy is the Santa Barbara Independent’s podcast, hosted by Molly McAnany. On this week’s episode, we sat down with Ryan Rising and Melissa Ortiz of the Gaucho Underground Scholars Initiative about their efforts to build a prison-to-university pipeline, granting formerly incarcerated and system-impacted students a chance to reclaim their futures.
