Kansas Myths & Mysteries

A family of serial killers who were never caught...a fortune left buried along the banks of a creek by the Dalton gang...and orphans shipped from New York for a “good” life on the prairie.

These are some of the mysteries and myths of Kansas. 

Tuesday on Up to DateSteve Kraske welcomes author Diana Lambdin Meyer to pull back the curtain on some of the Sunflower State’s most fascinating stories.

Based in the Kansas City area, Diana Lambdin Meyer and her husband Bruce, a professional photographer with skills in video and still photography, have more than 25 years experience as a freelance travel writing/photography team. Diana Both are members of the Society of American Travel Writers, and Diana also holds membership in the Midwest Travel Writers Association.  Their work has been recognized for excellence by both organizations. They specialize in soft adventure, heritage and general destination travel features, as well as profiles of craft artisans and the museums that feature their work. They enjoy both domestic and international destinations.  Diana is conversant in French; Bruce speaks some German and they both attempt to butcher Spanish or any other language they encounter with enthusiasm and appreciation for the learning opportunity.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9, my aim is to engage the community in conversations about the Kansas City area’s challenges, hopes and opportunities. I try to ask the questions that listeners want answered about the day’s most pressing issues and provide a place for residents to engage directly with newsmakers.
