RadioActive host Nick Burns talks with Karl Winsness about his “Willy the Plumber” college scholarship program for the children of incarcerated individuals. Winsness created it after doing time and seeing how his choices limited those of his own children. Since starting the program two years ago, he’s helped eight teens with their higher education goals. Joining Nick and Karl is Mariah Williamson, one of his first scholarship recipients. (Producer: Shannalee Otanez.)
