Interview with Rhett and Stewart

JM: Did you have regular access to telephones?
Rhett: They had two phones down there but you had to be taken to them.
Stewart: Yes but they required calling cards. You were only allowed one call per number for two minutes and then abrupt disconnection.

JM: What types of charges applied for calling people? How much money would you guess the average inmate spends per week on phone calls?
Rhett: I don't think it cost anything because this was your one free call kind of deal.
Stewart: I think 30 min calling card cost 20 bucks but I always spent my money on food.

JM: Did you need to buy phone cards to call out?
Rhett: Didn't need those.
Stewart: Yes it was the only way to contact the outside world.

JM: Did the jail screen your calls?
Rhett: Yes, and there was a guard standing next to me the whole time.
Stewart: I'm not exactly sure to be honest.
