We pay another visit to Nicodemus to observe an archeological dig there and see what clues have been unearthed about the town's founders. Then, we move on to Marquette in central Kansas to learn how the leadership in that town is encouraging modern-day settlers. And in our Plains People segment, we meet Elmer Lindell, a Lawrence veteran who shares memories of his personal experiences during World War II

We explore some recent theatrical releases about Truman Capote and the time he spent in this state nearly 50 years ago. Then we talk with Kevin Willmott, a Lawrence filmmaker, who utilizes the concept of "community filmmaking." And in our Plains People segment, we meet a modern-day Indiana Jones who searches for meteorites in the fields of Kansas.
