Jade Suit At The Nelson; The Outhouse Documentary; Mike Dillon

In our January arts show: we hear more about a new exhibition at The Nelson that features artifacts from the tombs of kings of ancient China — including a burial suit that's made from over 4000 pieces of jade.

The producer of a new documentary brings us back to The Outhouse, the storied cinderblock music venue in the middle of a cornfield outside of Lawrence. Plus: get to know Mike Dillon, a musician with KC roots. He'll be playing the music of Elliott Smith on the vibraphone at the Toy and Miniature Museum this weekend.

Guests:

People don't make cameos in news stories; the human story is the story, with characters affected by news events, not defined by them. As a columnist and podcaster, I want to acknowledge what it feels like to live through this time in Kansas City, one vantage point at a time. Together, these weekly vignettes form a collage of daily life in Kansas City as it changes in some ways, and stubbornly resists change in others.
