Seg. 1: Women Ranchers. Seg. 2: Economics Of Beer

Segment 1: Kansas women share stories of life on the range.

More women are running ranches in America, according to a recent New York Times article. So what does that phenomenon look like in Kansas? In this conversation, we hear stories out on the range from female ranchers in the heart of America.

Segment 2, beginning at 33:20: Is Kansas City overflowing with breweries?

Kansas City is home to more than 30 microbreweries, with more to open in 2019. Are we going to experience a beer bubble? We ask a beer economist to find out.

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.
