Watch the show and join the conversation on theĀ Intersection website.

Nearly a year after a severe tornado ripped through Joplin, a new documentary is being premiered this week in Columbia that chronicles the efforts of the Joplin Globe newspaper staff to keep the community informed in the wake of the disaster. We talk about the communication challenges a community faces in these types of situations. We also check in about crisis communication plans for mid-Missouri.
