Apr 23, 2018

Segment 1: The processes threatening, and protecting, Missouri's governor.

Tensions are high in Jefferson City as lawmakers continue calls for Eric Greitens' resignation but, as the governor faces possibly career-ending felony charges, ensuring fairness is paramount. Today, a veteran journalist discusses the systems in place to guarantee justice for the governor, and for the state of Missouri.

Segment 2 beginning at 25:54: Archivists work to preserve history through written and audio records.

It's Preservation Week, which means libraries around the country are highlighting efforts to protect historical records. UMKC's Miller Nichols Library houses multiple archives, including collections of local yearbooks, city directories and radio recordings. We spoke with two archivists from UMKC to learn about their work and why these materials are still important today.
