In the early 1990s, two young men growing up in the high-rise projects of Chicago's South Side teamed up with award-winning producer David Isay to create groundbreaking radio documentaries about life and death in their tough neighborhood. Now the story of LeAlan Jones and Lloyd Newman is the subject of a new Showtime docudrama. Hear their original reports for Isay's Sound Portraits project. (8:00) See Ghetto Life 101 and Remorse.
