Twin Trouble – the podcast about fighting the system and staying rebellious while being incarcerated. The show takes the form of a recorded phone call between Jason in Chicago, and his twin brother Jeremy, locked up in Alexandria, VA, just outside D.C.
Episode 1 – 12 Prisons, 9 States, 8 Years
The first episode of Twin Trouble introduces our hosts, Jeremy and Jason Hammond, twin brothers who have both been incarcerated for hacking and antifascism. It begins with detailing Jeremy’s numerous prison transfers over the years culminating into a discussion about doing additional time in Alexandria, VA. He was due to be released the month of this episode, but instead was ‘produced’ before a Federal Grand Jury, where he was held in contempt for refusing to testify against Wikileaks. In this episodes On The Noise! segment, the twins talk about the imminent legalization of cannabis in Illinois in 2020, highlighting the continued criminalization of weed at the federal level, as well as issues of inequity in the sales and licensing in Chicago. Otherwise, it’s talking shit on the feds about the impeachment and the presidents refusal of his own subpoenas for a Grand Jury. This episode features music by Glutton for Insurrection.
Jeremy is an anarchist hacker, book enthusiast, prison wine connoisseur, and has been locked up since March of 2011 for hacking government entities and private intelligence corporations with Anonymous offshoot groups Lulzsec and Antisec. He acted as a whistleblower for the release of the Global Intelligence Files on Wikileaks. Jeremy was due to be released in December, 2019, but is held in contempt and currently jailed in Alexandria, VA. for refusing to testify in a Federal Grand Jury.
Jason was incarcerated from 2015-2016 for participation in an organized antifascist action against a white supremacist meeting in the near Chicago suburb of Tinley Park. Recently, he mostly plays piano, records music, makes crispy cornbread pancakes, and volunteers for campaigns to end wealth-based pre-trial incarceration with the Chicago Community Bond Fund.
