Aubrey Urban, professor of Theatre at Johnson County Community College, explores the stories behind old opera houses in Kansas. Poet Laureate of Kansas Huascar Medina reads his poem "Mi Isla." Brad Penka, chairman of the Kansas Post Rock Limestone Coalition, discusses how innovative early Kansas pioneers used limestones as building materials that still shape Kansas architecture today. These hotline selections are available through April 30, 2021.
