Segment 1: Big development shifts in Kansas City's East Bottoms.

There's been a lot of economic buzz in the East Bottoms lately. A local distillery looks to expand operations to the historic Heim Brewery bottling plant, while a well-known meat shop moves out to a new location in the River Market. On this episode, we discuss the past, present, and future of the East Bottoms.

Segment 2, beginning at 34:14: All good things must come to an end. That includes StoryCorps' stay in Kansas City.

StoryCorps, a national organization dedicated to preserving the stories of Americans from all walks of life, is leaving Kansas City after several weeks of recording. We chat about the stories of Kansas Citians that will be preserved for ages in the Library of Congress.
