Segment 1: Updates on the projects that are changing Kansas City's urban neighborhoods.

As property developments continue unabated in downtown Kansas City, we return with a review of the latest batch of projects. This installment covers recent happenings in the River Market, the Crossroads, around 18th And Vine, and along Troost Avenue between 24th Street and Linwood Boulevard. We also discussed the controversial continued reliance on tax incentives in parts of town like the Power and Light District, which have already seen success.

Segment 2, beginning at 21:13: "A Girl's Guide to Joining the Resistance."

From #TimesUp to #NeverAgain, young women are leading many of today's movements. But the struggles facing young female activists are unique, according to author Emma Gray. In this rebroadcast of a March 2018 interview, she shared her perspectives on how to become and stay involved in social change.

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.
