Seg. 1: What's Up With Brush Creek? Seg. 2: Open Spaces Recommendation

Segment 1: The history behind Brush Creek and where it is today.

On this episode, we find out how Brush Creek, a once natural body of water, became a dual-purpose sewage system and recreation area. Hint: it starts with Pendergast and cement.

Segment 2, beginning at 42:13: This week's top events and exhibits at Open Spaces.

Open Spaces, a citywide arts festival, is underway. We check in on the must-see events of the week.

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.
