Seg. 1: Indigenous Meals. Seg. 2: KC Hispanic News.

Segment 1: Celebrating indigenous foods at Thanksgiving.

Turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce are staples for the modern-day Thanksgiving feast. But the story of the first Thanksgiving is one where indigenous people prepared food with ingredients and cooking methods native to North America. We explore native cuisine with two indigenous chefs.

Segment 2, beginning at 35:08: What's new in KC Hispanic News?

This is our regular segment where we check in with the people who report on particular communities in our metro. The publisher of "KC Hispanic News" joins us with stories about the so-called "caravan," e-cigarettes, and a former criminal who wants to apologize. 

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.
