It's a promise we've heard so many times before: Flying cars! Will a new plan from Uber finally get commuters off the ground? Then, we find out why Robert D. Kaplan expects more and more waves of refugees to sweep the globe. This week's Local Listen features jazz vocalist and Great Bend, Kansas, native Karrin Allyson.

Robert D. Kaplan will present the fall Cockefair Chair lecture, 'Refugees in a World of Anarchy,' in Pierson Auditorium on the UMKC Campus at 5:30 p.m. on Wednesday, November 16. For ticketing information, visit UMKC.edu.

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.

As culture editor, I oversee KCUR’s coverage of race, culture, the arts, food and sports. I work with reporters to make sure our stories reflect the fullest view of the place we call home, so listeners and readers feel primed to explore the places, projects and people who make up a vibrant Kansas City.
