Check, Please! Kansas City is KCPT’s restaurant review show where host Doug Fost sits down with regular viewers like you dine and dish on their favorite local eateries.
Each episode features three guests; each recommends his or her favorite restaurant. The other two guests then go and experience it for themselves. After the guests have experienced each other’s recommendations they meet at KCPT’s studio to discuss their experiences. The reviewers are not affiliated with any restaurant, nor are they food experts. They come from all walks of life—attorneys, scrub techs, self-proclaimed media darlings—and the list goes on. They live all over the metropolitan area, including one intrepid soul who trucks in to work every day from Baldwin City, Kansas. The one thing the guests do share is their passion for food and for their chosen restaurant.
Author Christopher B. Leinberger describes how government policy over the last 60 years – driven by the auto and oil industry – has encouraged suburban sprawl with its strip malls and isolated housing developments. The result: decline of community, urban decay, pollution, and a rise in obesity and asthma. But there’s a new approach (or perhaps it’s an old approach) in which citizens live, work, and play within easy walking distance.
Developer and educator Leinberger is a visiting fellow at the Brookings Institution and is director of the Graduate Real Estate Program at the University of Michigan.

Join KCPT and Tivoli Cinemas for the first in a series of monthly Community Cinema screenings. On Saturday, September 10 at 11am we’ll watch and discuss a documentary from the upcoming PBS series Women, War & Peace which looks at conflict across the globe from the perspective of women. Peace Unveiled is the third part of Women, War & Peace and follows three women in Afghanistan who risk their lives to make sure women’s rights don’t get traded away in peace negotiations with the Taliban.
Community Cinema is a groundbreaking public education and civic engagement initiative featuring free monthly screenings of films from the Emmy Award-winning series Independent Lens. Community Cinema is on location in more than 95 cities nationally, bringing together leading organizations, community members, and public television stations to learn, discuss, and get involved in key social issues of our time.
Join KCPT and the Kansas City Public library for a special community conversation about the civil rights movement in Kansas City. A panel moderated by Nick Haines will discuss civil rights activism past and present as well as what role individuals and groups have to play in addressing current civil rights issues.
Selected clips from Freedom Riders — a new documentary describing the experiences of 400 black and white Americans that rode buses into the deep South in defiance of Jim Crow laws in 1961—sets the stage for the community conversation.
Attendees viewed the second part of the documentary titled “Enforcement”, which illustrates the lengthy process of attaining citizenship legally, the inconsistencies in the legal system, and policemen who have to choose between enforcing the law and building trust with documented and undocumented immigrants in integrated communities.
The policemen in the documentary are two of Kansas City’s own. Police officers Matthew Tomasic and Chato Villalobos, who work in the Westside, were in attendance and answered people’s questions about their work in one of KC’s largest Hispanic neighborhoods.
Comments about the film included concerns about the use of the term “illegal”, pride in the police officers compassionate and community approach, and stories about prejudice against Hispanics in other areas of Kansas City.
