Seg. 1: Toxic Stress And Children's Health. Seg. 2: What Makes A Good Quote Quotable.

Center for Youth Wellness

Segment 1: How trauma and abuse in childhood can mean a lifetime of illness.

Dr. Nadine Burke Harris had already established herself as a provider of care to vulnerable children when she met a patient named Diego, but the boy changed her way of thinking about the effects of toxic stress. We spoke with the doctor about Diego's story, and about the connections between childhood trauma and lifelong illness.

Segment 2, beginning at 22:24: Dorothy Sayers once said, "I always have a quotation for everything — it saves original thought."

Whether you're dispensing wisdom, providing solace, or just proving a point, quotations come in handy. Today, we put some of our listeners' favorite quotes to the editor of the latest edition of "Barlett's Familiar Quotations," and found out how they selected the lucky few cataloged in the collection's 1,438 pages.

When I host Up To Date each morning at 9 a.m., 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. My email is steve@kcur.org.
The Kansas City region has long been a place where different ways of life collide. I tell the stories of people living and working where race, culture and ethnicity intersect. I examine racial equity and disparity, highlight the area's ethnic groups and communities of color, and invite all of Kansas City to explore meaningful ways to bond with and embrace cultures different from their own.
