Telling the untold stories

I grew up in KCK and love Kansas City in general. This podcast tells the untold stories of KC. I’m excited to just have listened to the first episode about the Wyandot National Burying Ground that I grew up seeing every time I visited the library, but knew nothing about. Hearing Lyda Conley’s story was inspiring as she took action to stand up for what she believed in, during a time where her behavior was unwelcome. Looking forward to hearing more of these important stories! -Lisa Peña, Urban Hikes KC
