What Next: He Got a Pardon. Now He’s Administering Them.
For a long time, Brandon Flood kept his criminal history quiet - he worked in the Pennsylvania state government, and didn’t want his former convictions to detract from his career success. But now, that history makes him uniquely suited for his new job as secretary of the state’s Board of Pardons. How did he go from submitting his own pardon application - to one year later, leading the body that helps make those clemency decisions? This episode was originally posted in April.
Guest: Brandon Flood, Secretary of the Pennsylvania state Board of Pardons.  
Podcast production by Mary Wilson, Jayson De Leon, and Ethan Brooks
