Seg. 1: A Year As An Artist. Seg. 2: Diggers And Doughboys

Segment 1: Art isn't just fun and games.

To some, art seems more like a hobby rather than ‘real work.’ But, for many artists, that’s far from the truth. We visit with a Kansas Citian about what they discovered after being an artist for a year.


Segment 2, beginning at 23:03: How World War I sparked a lasting friendship between the United States and Australia.

This year marks the 100th anniversary of the informal end to World War I. On this episode, we learn about the National World War I Museum and Memorial's latest exhibit, exploring the comradeship between Australia and the United States. We also check-in to see where that friendship stands now.

The exhibition "Diggers and Doughboys: The Art of Allies 100 Years On" will be on display at the National World War I Museum and Memorial from September 11 through November 11. For more information, visit TheWorldWar.org.

Gina’s background combines print and broadcast journalism, live event hosting and production, creative nonfiction writing and involvement in the arts. Early in her career, she followed a cultural beat for The Pitch, where she served as an editor and art writer in the early 2000s.
Coy began his radio career in 2016, after a close friend suggested that he should take an internship with KCUR over a similar offer from a local TV station. His pal's sage reasoning? Because Coy has "a voice for radio. And a face to match.” A producer, announcer, and all-around audiophile, Coy's favorite talk shows and news stories are the ones that explore the rich culture of Kansas City, the town he was raised in. Coy is also a fan of digital painting due to a deep-rooted aversion for paint stains. He lives on Kansas City's east side and knows how to properly pronounce "Sni-A-Bar" a feat few Kansas Citians can boast.
