KCUR 89.3

There have been some hits and some misses during President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office. One thing everyone agrees on is there has been no shortage of surprises. Today, we hear from a distinguished panel of political observers; ABC News analyst Matthew Dowd, Time magazine editor-at-large David Von Drehle, and Pulitzer Prize-winning editorial writer Colleen Nelson, of the Kansas City Star. They discuss the early days of the new executive administration.

Matthew Dowd will discuss his book 'A New Way: Embracing the Paradox as We Lead and Serve' at the Kansas City Public Library's Plaza Branch on Tuesday, May 2, at 6:30 p.m. For more information, go to

David Von Drehle will give the keynote speech at the Mid-America Regional Council's 2017 regional assembly at the Westin Kansas City Hotel at Crown Center on Friday, June 9. Visit for more information.
