Segment 1: Addressing gun violence from the pulpit
Local leaders looking for a fix to the gun violence problem in Kansas City have tried policy solutions of their own, and have begged for legislative action from the General Assembly in Jefferson City. Progress, though, has been limited. Will turning to a higher power help? We ask local faith leaders what role their churches have in curbing gun violence.

Segment 2, beginning at 21:00: Is Kansas City pedestrian-friendly?
One Kansas City councilman's recent run-in with an angry motorist got us wondering if Kansas City is, or ever was, a safe place for pedestrians. Two bicycle and pedestrian advocates talked about the progress that's being made, and how to go about changing what some call "a toxic driving culture."
