As food critic Danielle Lehman points out, the game doesn't start until 5 p.m. so fans can start Super Bowl Sunday with Chiefs-themed cake donuts from Mr. D's Donuts.

What's in the wager between Kansas City's KCUR and Tampa's WUSF, the latest on the Chiefs' players and the Food Critics set you up for all-day Super Bowl Sunday eating.

Segment 1, beginning at 4:09: What smack talk sounds like on public radio and which Chiefs' players will be on the field come game day.

A sports championship offers a rare opportunity for public radio personalities to practice their verbal potshot skills, and after injuries and COVID-19 scares, what shape are the Kansas City Chiefs in for the championship game.

Segment 2, beginning at 29:49: Suggestions for a complete day of Super Bowl feasting!

The predicted cold front descending on the metro may put the kibosh on firing up the grill or maybe you need some sides to go with your main course. The Food Critics are loaded with recommendations of area eateries with takeout options to save the day!

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers. Reach me at steve@kcur.org or on Twitter @stevekraske.

Whether it’s something happening right now or something that happened 100 years ago, some stories don’t fit in the short few minutes of a newscast. As a podcast producer at KCUR, I help investigate questions and local curiosities in a way that brings listeners along for adventures with plot twists and thought-provoking ideas. Sometimes there isn’t an easy answer in the end – but my hope is that we all leave with a greater understanding of the city we live in. Reach me at mackenzie@kcur.org.
As senior producer of Up To Date, I want our listeners to hear familiar and new voices that shine light on the issues and challenges facing the myriad communities KCUR serves, and to expose our audiences to the wonderful and the creative in the Kansas City area. Just as important to me is an obligation to mentor the next generation of producers to ensure that the important conversations continue. Reach me at alexanderdk@kcur.org.
