The Throwaways is a documentary film featuring a formerly incarcerated homeless man, Ira McKinley, and his struggles to reintegrate into and also change his local community in Albany, New York.  He was joined on the film by local independent filmmaker Bhawin Suchak, the founder of YouthFX in Albany.  In this edition of the Campbell Conversations, host Grant Reeher discusses the film's making and purpose with the two collaborators. 

Grant Reeher is Director of the Campbell Public Affairs Institute and a professor of political science at Syracuse University’s Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs. He is also creator, host and program director of “The Campbell Conversations” on WRVO, a weekly regional public affairs program featuring extended in-depth interviews with regional and national writers, politicians, activists, public officials, and business professionals.
