A 19-year-old nominee for the Kansas House has admitted to and apologized for harassing girls when he was 14. Who gets to decide when and how to forgive him?
Aaron Coleman's story has made national headlines, and the conversation surrounding his actions has shifted to examine of the culture and behavior of young men. Coleman has said he's ready to move on, but some victims of his abuse struggle to do just that.
When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., 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. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
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 email@example.com or find me on Twitter @_macmartin.
