We're going to take a quick journey to the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve. NPR's Brian Mann went on a trail run there and sends us an audio postcard. Plus, KMUW's movie reviewer Fletcher Powell looks at a new documentary series that he says far surpasses its genre.

Plus more on these stories:

  • Election officials in Sedgwick County hope that eleven advance voting centers that open today produce a higher voter turnout.
  • Heat waves are significantly worse for about 1 million people in Wichita and Kansas City. We have reports on the new data.
  • Kansas has paused removing people from Medicaid health coverage because of concerns about slow mail and other issues with renewal forms.
  • A University of Kansas football player was charged in court Tuesday with aggravated criminal threat.
  • The Kansas City Royals expect to release final details on their proposed stadium move in the next 30 days.
