Seg. 1: Savannah Rodgers | Seg. 2: Get More Sleep

Segment 1: How a 1990s movie on DVD saved the life of a queer Kansas teen.

Savannah Rodgers is making a documentary about her obsession, as a 12-year-old, with the movie Chasing Amy.

Segment 2: Why employers care how much sleep you get, and what they're doing about it.

A conference on sleep for the business community got us thinking about how the culture of a workplace contributes to a good or bad night's sleep. This discussion originally aired in February 2018.

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.
