Segment 1: A puppeteer takes on a beloved childhood classic with virtually no narrative, but lots of dogs.

Mesner Puppet Theater is staging two very different productions this summer: P.D. Eastman's Go, Dog, Go! and The Tempest, by William Shakespeare.

Segment 2, beginning at 12:35: A photographer on being the artist-in-residence at the Missouri State Fair.

Rather than turning his lens on animals, rides or performers, Matt Rahner focused on the people visiting the fair, in his series Fair Pictures.

Segment 3, beginning at 27:00: Eems, a Kansas City musician, tells his story.

From hating music while singing in church as a kid on Kansas City's "northside" to inventing ukelele hip-hop to getting into drill teams. His new EP is called Dreems.
