Listen to this and more in-depth storytelling by subscribing to The California Report Magazine podcast.

On this week's show, we're sharing an episode of the KALW podcast Uncuffed, which is made by incarcerated journalists at Solano State Prison and San Quentin State Prison.

A prison might not be the first place you'd think of to celebrate a wedding. But it's where Uncuffed producer Edmond Richardson is marrying the love of his life,  Avelina. He talks about his joys and his fears as the day approaches and we learn what it takes to have a ceremony at San Quentin.
