In this episode of Observer Radio, staff writer Patrick Michels tells the tale of Jeffrey Holliman who survived for the better part of a year in the piney woods in Nacogdoches County by allegedly ransacking his neighbors. Staff writer Melissa del Bosque joins us to discuss creationism and Attorney General Greg Abbott’s border security plan.

Later in the show, freelance writer Alex Hannaford calls in to discuss a story about one of the largest prison guard unions in the country calling for a partial end to solitary confinement on death row.
