Former Cleveland Scene reporter Kyle Swenson's new book, "Good Kids, Bad City: A Story of Race and Wrongful Conviction in America" chronicles the story of three young black Clevelanders wrongfully convicted of murder in 1975.

Swenson and Kwame Ajamu, one of the wrongfully convicted, join us for a conversation.
