Rebekah writes to an inmate on Death Row. This is her story.
In this episode, Rebekah shares her letter-writing journey; from sending letters to her family, to exchanging postcards with strangers, to her recent decision to reach out to a convict on Death Row – Charles Thompson.
We find out why Rebekah feels the urge to connect with a criminal 4000 miles away, how she decided who to write to, and what it was like to receive those first letters back from her new pen-pal. We also hear what those closest to Rebekah think about her unusual hobby.
My Death Row Pen Pal is a three-part series, with additional special bonus material via BBC Sounds.
