Dec 6, 2018

Segment 1: Should Kansas City's football team consider changing their name?

The Kansas City Chiefs are no longer under consideration for any awards given by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, on the grounds that the name is racist and has negative effects on community health. We discuss the repercussions of the team's name, as well as fans' chants and participation in the tomahawk chop.

Segment 2, beginning at 20:06: Kansas City still struggles with afforable housing.

The city has published two lengthy reports about housing in Kansas City, but are they any closer to helping people get in homes they can afford? We learn about the obstacles of building and finding affordable housing, and look at local pushes for improvement.
