Seg. 1: Food Safety & Feeding The Homeless. Seg. 2: They Call Me Sauce

Segment 1: Food safety and feeding the homelessness in Kansas City.

The Kansas City Health Department recently intercepted food intended for the homeless out of concern for food safety, then used bleach to ensure it would not be consumed. The story has gone viral, generating a heated discussion in the metro and beyond. On this episode, we address the underlying tensions about how to help, and the needs in our community still going unmet -- with upwards of 4,000 people enduring homelessness.

Segment 2, beginning at 36:07: A local hip-hop artist is dropping a new album next week.

Sauce is a Kansas City hip-hop artist who works with local teen musicians. We get a sneak preview of his new album #soulfood4 and find out what's in store for upcoming live performances.

Sauce will perform at the Stockyard Brewing Company at 6:30 p.m. on November 19. Click here for ticketing and more information.
