Lori Graham – Kansas Senate Candidate 2016 Interview +

Kansas Senate candidate, Lori Graham, is on our show telling us what her research has led her to believe will be better solutions to our state’s problems. Then in the last two segments, we have local business owners ask her questions from their point of view.

1st Segment: Lori Graham is running for one of the many Kansas state senate seats that are open this term. She’s not a career politician and has no intention of being in politics beyond 8 years. She’s a firm believer in that everyone should have term limits and that if you haven’t been able to fix problems or affect change for the better within that time, then you should let someone else step in and try.

We start by covering changing our state’s tax set up to have no personal income tax, like Texas and other states. Lori’s research shows that other states with this same structure are doing very well, and in comparison to Texas in particular, Kansas pays out similar amounts with little returns.

Then, we tackle our school funding issues. Lori tells us why she dug into the truth about how much money is being spent and why the system is not actually working, along with how some other state’s are using an education plan that is doing very well. She would like to see this approach adopted by Kansas.

Overall, Lori’s message is very much about putting the power back into the voter’s hands – our Kansas residents.

In our third and fourth segments, Kansas business owners ask Lori questions that they as residents and business owners of Kansas want to know.
The owners of and ask about taxes and clarification on some other topics. But, Lori asks for their feedback too!

On Location At District Marketplace + Wichita Food Trucks!

Today the hosts are at District Marketplace in downtown Wichita, plus we meet some of the Wichita Food Trucks! Jenn, Robin, Fasa and Don start the show by talking about Colorado and legalized marijuana. Not just that, we talk about the medicinal benefits and all the other things that hemp can be used for that would reduce the use of non-renewable substances.

Then we talk about where you are allowed to use your bank card with YOUR money on it.

Second Segment:  Janelle from The WorkRoom and Don from Mr. Natural Soul Kitchen and District Marketplace join us along with Craig of Dappery Dodo burritos. We hear what the view looks like for District Marketplace. The plans are to create a solid community backed and supported area that supports musicians, artists, makers and the food industry. Originally, it was going to be an urban garden but has developed into something much bigger. You’ll have to watch and listen to hear about what the vision has turned into.

They’ve had crowds up to 2500 people show up for the market!

Third Segment: We are back with the food trucks!

Craig of Dappery Dodo Breakfast burritos who runs out of the Mr. Natural Food Truck from 11 til 3am on Fridays and Saturdays. He’s the perfect example of one of the long-term goals that Don has for District Marketplace; an incubator for anyone who has thought about starting a food truck or restaurant but isn’t sure they can make a go of it, or who doesn’t have everything in place to start on their own.

Craig runs a new menu starting every Final Friday. He gives us some history on the kind of food he cooks and why. The biscuit and gravy burrito was so good that one of our camera crew stole it while we were taping!

Alan of  The Kamayan Truck brings several things to the table and let me tell you, they are as beautiful to look at as they are to eat. They also have some of the best sticky rice our hosts have had in a long time! However, their drinks were also incredible. Watch to see what they offer.

The folks who run Funky Monkey Munchies  are a little camera shy, so Don helped out to describe their food. The crab rangoon tacos are now a household favorite for dessert!

Kind Kravings features mostly organic and vegan choices but don’t let that throw you. It’s absolutely delish. They make it all from scratch!

Don tells us about some of the new trucks including a hot dog truck, ice cream truck, barbecue and even a crepe truck! The food trucks really keep it local – they buy from local farmers and that money stays in our area. Don goes over the schedule for the trucks, along with some of the other events happening at the marketplace.

Fourth Segment: 

We are back with Donnie and talking about the price of food truck food and how that compares to the national drive-through fast food restaurants. Then we talk about how The Workroom and the District Marketplace has blossomed slowly with building a stage for bands and musicians, and the future markets.

The Marketplace can take donations to refurbish, so keep in mind your lawn furniture and other materials like wood and more. They’ll have a donations tab up on their site soon too! But in the meantime, contact Don through the District Marketplace FB page.

Shot on location at the WSU n.Oliver campus. We met with John Paul Gendron, Manager, Referral Center Programs and Operations from Network Kansas to discover all the resources available to Kansas businesses and entrepreneurs that most of us don’t even know are here.

Kansas Center For Entreprenuership
Network Kansas – throughout the state of Kansas. Wichita (at the Wichita State University campus), Andover, Leoti, and on KU campus.

Wichita’s location is on the Metropolitan Complex at 29th & Oliver.

John explains how many of the programs work through Network Kansas and how to access them.

All their services are free to use!

Did you know there’s a patent office in the WSU campus? They’ll walk you through the process of application too!


So, the process is this; You call Network Kansas and tell them your situation or what you are looking for. They will hook you up to a referral agent who then will go find the resources you need and will hook you up to it.

What kind of a market are we? You’ll have to watch to find out, but it’s kind of a big deal.

There’s so much information in this show! John stays with us for all three segments and tells us what other resources are available.
