This February marked the fourth anniversary of News Inside. From the beginning, we’ve provided articles that connect with our audience, and Issue 13 brings more of the same. “Giving Incarcerated People What They Want — Better News Access” reflects our readers’ desire for information. We are providing this for free on tablets, which typically cost money to use. Sticking with the wants, we share an account of a state's strategy to enhance the diet of people incarcerated in its prisons (“‘Pig Slop’ No More? Texas Prisons Detail Plan to Improve Food”).

While those sorts of goodies are what The Marshall Project is known for, we also introduce our local reporting in this issue. Our Cleveland newsroom, which launched less than a year ago, exposes abuses through investigative, data and community journalism. There, we found a disparity in what people living in Cuyahoga County pay to talk to their incarcerated loved ones, compared to those who receive calls from Ohio state prisons (“The High Cost of a Conversation From Cuyahoga County Jail”).
