with Host, David Bell
KKFI’s Jaws of Justice Radio investigates how to achieve justice in America, in the areas of economic injustice, political injustice and the criminal justice system. The goal is to put a human face on those caught in the grasp of injustice and those that are part of an unjust system. David Bell, and other podcast hosts, strive to dispel the misconceptions created by the news and entertainment industry, politicians and our educational system.

EMPATHY SERIES – PART 1
David Bell talks with Dr Nicole Price about her forthcoming book “Spark the Heart, Engineering Empathy in your Organization.” Empathy, often dismissed as a soft skill, is one of the most undervalued skills at our disposal. Recognizing and understanding why another person believes what they believe and values what they value, even if it is different from our own views and thoughts, is fundamental to the criminal justice system. If you are unable to be empathetic, can you ever be truly effective?
