    Host: What are activities, I can do in my cell?

    Ed Bales: Usually in your cell, you can read, you can listen to your radio. You are usually assigned a personal radio. If you are in a state facility, many of them allow you to have a television in your cell. If you are in a federal facility, there are Television rooms, no one has a T.

    V. in the room, but you're very limited in what you can do because normally you have a room mate, bunk mate whichever way you would like to call them and you are limited to the activities. It's not a very private spot that you would think you would have.
