Alan Smith spent 14 years teaching philosophy and literature to violent criminals in a prison in England until he realized he was changing, slowly "becoming more of the prison than I wanted to be," and had to walk away.

Hear Alan Smith's interview on The Story with Dick Gordon on the show's site. Also in this edition: the original Teenage Diary of Frankie Lewchuck, who was really close to his dad – until the day his dad almost went away for good.
