Good Kids, Bad City And Wrongful Convictions In America


The United States incarcerates the highest number of people in the world at the highest rate in the world, and sometimes wrongly. 

That’s the topic of award-winning journalist and author Kyle Swenson’s new book, where he covers the story of three Cleveland men who each served 39 years in prison for a crime they did not commit. 

Today on All Sides, Swenson joins us to talk about it and wrongful convictions in America.
