Today's show was recorded at Jasper's Marco Polo Trattoria, with all the wonderful sight, sounds and smells. 

We love our Food Truck buddies, and today we feature one of them, who did something extraordinary - some would say, heroic. Brett Atkinson - "Brettski" to his friends - the proprietor of the "Wilma's Real Good Food" trailer, couldn't bare to see the suffering in Moore, OK after the devastating tornado leveled a significant part of the town. So he did what he could do.

He gassed up the rig, filled it with provisions and drove down I-35, where he was taken in by a local church, and he set up and feed hundreds of free meals to anyone who needed a meal. The whole adventure was literally on a wing and a prayer. He didn't know where the money would come from, where he'd be able to buy supplies down there, or even where he would stay. But it all came together. In part thanks to the generosity of many of our common friends. And the story is very touching and compelling. 

And, of course our usual silliness and banter about KC events. You'll want to tune in, if for no other reason than to learn where Rachel will be camped out for "national hugs day."
