What is Ten Minutes of Truth with Shawn A. Barksdale?

The show is about truth and how telling it can be cathartic and helpful to many! Look for Shawn to challenge his guest, to tell the truth, be transparent, and offer their life’s personal perspective on the many obstacles they have overcome. Shawn will place a special emphasis on prison life, how it affects the prisoner, his friends, and family. You will be amazed at how successful some have become after facing a portion of their life behind bars.
