Segment 1: The changing relationship between working artists and the Crossroads.

The Crossroads is a lively place, filled with condos, wine shops, doggie daycares and yoga studios. But back in 2000, it was much more quiet, inhabited by artists who brought their quirky vibe to the area. Now, the building that houses YJ's Snack Bar has been sold — and the longstanding café is moving. Is it the end of an era? What's next for the Crossroads and the artists?

Segment 2, beginning at 34:23: Meet Spencer Brown.

Local audiences might know him by his drag performer persona, Miss Daisy Buckët. But for the past 10 years, he has also been a member of The Kinsey Sicks, a group that bills itself as "America's Favorite Dragcapella Beautyshop Quartet." How politics, satire and drag go hand-in-hand.
