Richard Tripp, author, cab driver, and founder of Care of Poor People, Inc. www.coppinc.com, is looking for your help feeding and clothing the homeless in Kansas City.  Tripp returns to Tell Somebody to talk about the 20th annual Spring Break for the homeless coming up Saturady April 3, 2010.

In the second half of the show, Jessica Logsdon and Jeff Helkenberg give us a view of their DART house nightmare- they bought a house in the Northeast neighborhood of Kansas City, thought they had dotted all the 'i's' and crossed all the 't's', but ended up being arrested for trespassing in their own house because it was tagged as a drug house on a list that appears and disappears like a Cheshire cat, first in Kansas City MO territory, then in Jackson County, leaving nothing behind but an evil grin.

John Nichols - Betting on our Better Angels

John Nichols and Robert McChesney's new book, The Death and Life of American Journalism - The Media Revolution That Will Begin the World Again has been much in the news lately.  Recently I spoke to McChesney about it on the air and for this edition of Tell Somebody, I decided to give another listen to what John Nichols had to say kicking off a week of media reform events Alice Kitchen and I organzied with help from  Friends of Community Media and other groups in Kansas City with help from www.freepress.net and Common Cause in October, 2008.
