Central Standard

Tim Harte; Women In Politics

A new play, Trench Warfare, is about two infantry soldiers in World War I. We talk with the local musician who composed the score for the play; he shares how he evoked the feelings of WWI with a seven-piece orchestra and a computer.

Then: Sexual misconduct has been an issue in the Kansas and Missouri statehouses. Two women in politics from both sides of the state line compare notes from their experiences on the job.

Guests:

  • Tim Harte, composer
  • Abbie Hodgson, former legislative staffer from Kansas
  • Lauren Arthur, Missouri State Representative, District 18
