Seg. 1: Mayor Pete Buttigieg | Seg. 2: Artists Affording KCMO

Segment 1: Presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg in town for veterans project

As the second youngest mayor of South Bend, Indiana, and the first openly gay Democratic presidential candidate, Pete Buttigieg has made his way into the news. He discussed how he wants to approach the border crisis, Trump's racist tweets and the Veterans Community Project in Kansas City. 

Segment 3, beginning at 13:55: Kansas City artists struggle to find economical real estate 

Kansas City is  home to hundreds of artists, many of whom found room to reside and work in the River Market and Crossroads districts. But development in those areas have made them too expensive for artists  to stay there, resulting in displacement. Marissa Starke explained where they are moving to, and how the community can help artists thrive. 

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.
