Jacob Hill is the founder of Offploy, a recruitment company that aims to get 250 ex-offenders into meaningful, mentored and sustainable employment by July 2019. He is an ex-offender himself, as he served time in prison after dealing drugs at a music festival when his first start-up got him into significant debt. Given everything he does, and his experiences, we wanted to find out what his take on justice is, and how both victims and ex-offenders can be served justice in 2017.

What is the Echo Chamber Club Podcast all about?
In contrast to our newsletter, which seeks to show liberal and progressives a robust version of opposing points of view, our podcast seeks to strengthen our own ideology. We interview key thinkers; philosophers, journalists, academics and politicians about what their values are, and what it means to be anti-extremist and ‘centrist’ in 2017.
