Seg. 1: Homelessness & The Cold. Seg. 2: Glore Psychiatric Museums

Segment 1: What does this week's extreme cold mean for people without a home?

In the frigid cold Wednesday night, The Greater Kansas City Coalition to End Homelessness conducted their annual "point-in-time" survey with the goal of estimating the number of people experiencing homelessness in Kansas City. In this conversation, we hear first impressions on the survey results as well as perspective from a woman currently experiencing homelessness.

Segment 2, beginning at 34:18: Historic methods of treating mental health on display at local museum.

St. Joseph, Missouri is a small city with a big history — including more than a century's worth of knowledge on psychiatric care. In this conversation, we learn about a few of the exhibits at the Glore Psychiatric Museum and why it's a frequent haunt of ghost tours.
