Seg. 1: State of Transportation | Seg. 2: Need For 'Adulting'

Segment 1: Kansas City's transportation stories to watch in 2020

A preview of the transportation issues KCUR will be following this year included the Kansas City, Missouri streetcar, free bus rides for those in the city, equity and mobility in the single-terminal KCI project and that futuristic 30-minute ride from Kansas City to St. Louis via the Hyperloop.

Segment 2, beginning at 25:26: Young adults are increasingly unprepared for the tasks of everyday living.

Cooking a meal, devising a budget, and driving are all examples of skills that young people don't necessarily learn, or put off learning, before going out into the world. Thus "adulting" classes have sprung up around the country to fill this learning gap. Dr. Wes Crenshaw reviewed some of the reasons kids are not learning self-care and how to better prepare them for venturing out on their own.  

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.
