On this very special episode, we have on Paul Buckley and Ramses Merriman of the Baumy Group to discuss the TOWR, a digital billboard system used to provide information to people in jails and their families. We discuss what information people are looking for in jail, how the TOWR can help distribute that information in a more fair manner, and how powerful information is at any stage of incarceration.
