Back to today's show.
Jeff Smith starred in the 2006 documentary “Can Mr. Smith Get to Washington Anymore?” 

He was a Missouri State Senator from 2007 to 2009, representing the city of St. Louis. After serving a year-long sentence in FCI Manchester for obstruction of justice, he then worked as an assistant professor at the New School's Milano School of International Affairs, Management and Urban Planning. He is the author of “Mr. Smith Goes To Prison:
What My Year Behind Bars Taught Me About America's Prison Crisis” and “Ferguson in Black and White,” an ebook exploring the roots of the racial tension in Ferguson, Missouri. He is now the executive vice president at Concordance Academy of Leadership, which is “dedicated to reducing reincarceration by providing evidence-based, holistic services to justice-involved adults returning to the community after prison.”
You can follow him on Twitter @JeffSmithMO.
