The Killer Bread Gang were Prison Pipeline guests. They talked about life in and out of prison, and played some music. Dave, the baker of Dave’s Killer Bread talked about his life and the bread business. Then Dave played lead guitar, while Ladd sang his original song “DNA”. Pete, another employee at the bakery who was released 45 days ago joined us as we talked about a lot of Prison Pipeline stuff. Don’t miss this show!
