Mount Pleasant was once one of the most stable middle class neighborhoods in Cleveland. Today, it is best known for being the site of some of the most upsetting crimes of the last year. The Plain Dealer and ideastream are about to launch a series of interviews and reports examining the poverty and social ills that have taken hold of Mount Pleasant. On our program, we'll talk to lead reporters for the series about the roots of poverty and hear what "living poor" is like. Join us Friday at 9 a.m.
