Seg. 1: Reporting On Floods | Seg. 2: TVs Of Tomorrow (R)

Segment 1: Reporting on floods

Flooding has been catastrophic outside of Kansas City and covering the damage isn't an easy task. KCUR reporters share perspective on what it's like to wade into these stories.

Segment 2, beginning at 27:05: TVs of Tomorrow (Repeat)

Did you know that all your flat-screen devices, smartphone, TV, and laptop, are made possible by liquid crystals? The author of The TVs of Tomorrow shares how we came to rely on that technology.

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.
