“Unfriended,” a unique and original new horror entry gets a few “likes” from Russ.

Susan and Russ weigh in on “Merchants of Doubt,” an insightful documentary about climate change spin doctors.


Wednesday marks the one year anniversary of local fiddle wizard, Rebecca Pringle.  We’ll hear some her music, plus we’ll chat with The Guess Who’s Burton Cummings in anticipation of his show at Knuckleheads tonight, and we’ll hear a collective poems by some high school kids from Grandview recorded at Saturday’s If I Could Change the World spoken word event sponsored by The American Friends Service Committee and the Writers’ Place.


Rachel Vaughn and Melissa Freiburger discuss the Sunrise Project and the work that they’re doing in Douglas County, Kansas.

The attack on public education has become an onslaught starting from the heights of the American Legislative Exchange Council and subverting institutions from Kindergarten through higher education with the myth that public is bad and a failure. Hear about the corporate takeover of our schools this week on the Heartland Labor Forum, Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.


Trauma and adversity exposure disrupts most urban school systems. Trauma Sensitive Schooling prepares an entire school to counter the disruption. Beth Sarver, who coordinates Truman Medical Center’s Resilience Incubator, describes the trauma spectrum and how mindful teaching and learning harness the native resilience in all of us.


Russ scrutinizes “Merchants of Doubt,” a frightening but important documentary about professional spin doctors who create confusion about the concept of climate change.


In the aftermath of a racial stereotyping controversy surrounding the film “Get Hard,” Susan and Russ take a look back at the recent civil rights flick, “Selma.”
