Seg. 1: Regaining The Right To Vote. Seg. 2: Food And Transportation

Segment 1: Regaining the right to vote is a defining moment of reintegration.

The right to vote is a privilege many Americans take for granted. On this episode, we discuss what regaining the right to vote means to formerly incarcerated individuals.

Segment 2, beginning at 31:45: Buying groceries can be a logistical nightmare when using public transit. But can that change?

A shiny new grocery store is nice but it doesn't mean much if you can't get to it. We dive into a discussion on the issue of food and transportation in Kansas City.

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.
