In this episode we explore the bond between a mother and child in the context of one of the most constructed and unnatural experiences in modern America: incarceration. We travel back to Minnesota’s Shakopee Correctional Facility to see how women experience birth and motherhood from inside the facility - something Dascha Polanco’s character, Dayanara Diaz, navigates in Orange is the New Black. Dasha and Piper are in conversation to dig deeper into Dascha’s role and her personal story.
