President-elect Trump's first formal news conference lasted into today's Up To Date broadcast, so the show is shorter than usual. 

It includes a look at the War Against War, and the protests that almost kept the United States out of World War I. This week's Local Listen features Kansas rap duo Lincoln Marshall.

As a host and contributor at KCUR, I seek to create a more informed citizenry and richer community. I want to enlighten and inspire our audience by delivering the information they need with accuracy and urgency, clarifying what’s complicated and teasing out the complexities of what seems simple. I work to craft conversations that reveal realities in our midst and model civil discourse in a divided world. Follow me on Twitter @ptsbrian or email me at brian@kcur.org.
