AY Young is a local musician who's making a name for himself across the country with solar-powered, community-centered concerts. We hear the story of how he learned to rap without ever having heard rap music, and he fills us in on what to expect from his Open Spaces show this Sunday. Plus, a look at the latest episode of My Fellow Kansans.

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.
