In this Aug. 17, 2011 file photo, correctional officers keep watch on inmates on the recreation yard at Pelican Bay State Prison near Crescent City, Calif.

Today, a hunger strike continues at Pelican Bay State Prison and others in the state, as close to 30,000 inmates protest solitary confinement, among other issues. This protest is the largest in the state's history.

Paige St. John of the L.A. Times, who has been writing about the hunger strike, joins the show with an update.
