In the first season of My Fellow Kansans, we examined the forces and consequences of Kansas politics, the history behind it and the likelihood of another course-changing election in 2018. In season two, we explored the past, present and future of rural Kansas, because it too has a storied past. But as once-thriving towns continue to shrink, does it have a future? That, fellow Kansans, depends on whom you ask. Subscribe to My Fellow Kansans wherever you listen to podcasts.

    Introducing: Up From Dust

    Introducing: Up From Dust

    Trees are swallowing prairies. Bees are starving for food. Farmland is washing away in the rain. Humans broke the environment — but we can heal it, too. Up From Dust is a new podcast from the Kansas News Service about the price of trying to shape the world around our needs, as seen from America’s breadbasket: Kansas. Hosts Celia Llopis-Jepsen and David Condos wander across prairies, farm fields and suburbia to find the folks who are finding less damaging, more sustainable ways to fix our generational mistakes.

Great work

I’m a transplant to KS and am finding these podcasts to be fantastically informative about my new home. The current series on rural communities is enlightening and I think the more people across the state become educated about the entire state the better our chances to improve quality of life everywhere. I also enjoyed last season’s series on history of KS politics. High quality production, excellent reporting.

Season 2 was fantastic

I didn’t really expect a second season but I ended up liking it even more than season 1! I would highly recommend giving it a listen.
