Seg. 1: Missouri Unions | Seg. 2: Choral Piece On Gun Violence

Segment 1: What's going on with unions in Missouri?

Last year, union membership in Missouri went up, bucking a national trend of declining numbers. But the bigger picture is much more complicated. In this conversation, we take a close look at the current climate of local unions.

Segment 2, beginning at 39:24: Responding to gun violence epidemic through music.

We meet a local composer who has penned "No More," a choral piece addressing the need for 'real discussion' on gun violence.

  • Anthony Maglione, Director of Choral Studies at William Jewell College and composer of "No More"
