📻 I’m on the radio talking about the Katy Trail

When the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad, known as the KATY, canceled its route from Machens to Sedalia, the railroad’s loss became a gain for hikers and cyclists. The 200 miles of converted rail bed, now known as the KATY Trail, is an economic engine that falls short of reaching Kansas City — but that could be changing.

Guests:
Mike Sanders, Jackson County Executive
