Seg. 1: The Future Of Work. Seg. 2: KC Hispanic News.

Segment 1: How will automation affect the future of work?

Self-driving cars, ATMs and self-checkouts ... many fields have been affected by technology. And studies project that half our current work activities could be automated by 2055. What kind of work will we do — and will there be enough of it?

Segment 2, beginning at 35:55: Checking in with the publisher of the KC Hispanic News.

This is our regular segment where we check in with people who report on particular communities in the metro. The publisher of the KC Hispanic News joins us with a little-known deportation story in our community.
