Nowhere To Go But Up


Nov 18, 2020

Today on the podcast I welcome someone right up my wheelhouse, Joe Martinez. Joe joins me to discuss his gripping life story. From growing up a latchkey kid in San Antonio, Texas, to getting a twenty year sentence for a liquor store break-in, to finally quitting crime and getting clean for his family.

*

Joe also talks to me about his childhood, crimes he committed, shock probation, his turning points in life, major health issues from drug use, and parenting using his life decisions as teaching moments.

*

Joe Martinez is the host of his own podcast, The Talk From Cell Block, where he talks to current and formerly incarcerated people to give them back their voice.

Joe's Bio:

*

A man with a year of college (tried to major in English. I got bored)

I had my first run in with the law at the age of 10, and it never stopped. Rarely having to confront consequences for my petty to grand larceny crimes, I never understood the consequences of committing a crime and getting caught and being found guilty, until I was 17, when I took a guilty plea for a burglary and was given a 20 year sentence for it. After that, it was in and out of jail through out my life leading into my late 30’s. Now, I use the time on my hands to try to help expose the justice system for all the corruption that fills the court rooms in the united states, state and federal level.
