Seg. 1: Minimum Wage. Seg. 2: K-State Cyber Defense Club

Segment 1: The local impact of a minimum wage increase.

In November, 62% of Missouri voters supported Proposition B, a measure to raise the minimum wage across the state, gradually, to $12 an hour by 2023. On this episode, we explore what happens to local economies when the minimum wage increases and its societal effects.

Segment 2, beginning at 33:17: K-State club takes second place in National cyber defense competition.

There are a plethora of after school activities: drama, photography, soccer, basketball — the list goes on. So why not cyber security? We learn about a club at K-State that took top honors in the U.S. Department of Energy's 2018 CyberForce Competition.

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.
