Like any publication, this magazine cranks out content all year long. Every article we post resonates with us, but we each have our favorites — the pieces we really, really, really hope find their way to you. Here are our 10 staff picks of stories from 2017 we think you should read and watch — if you didn’t the first time around — or read again and share.

Cover Stories and News Reports

The first Monday of each month we bring you the deeper dive with our ‘Cover Story,’ and you can always find solid news and issues reporting throughout the month. Find those stories here: Cover Stories and News & Issues


The People — Their Lives and Their Curious Nature

Without a doubt some of our most read and shared content comes when we tell very personal stories. From our curiousKC initiative, which asks readers to let us know what they’d like us to cover, to history, to food, and the city’s culture, this category gets to the heart of who Kansas Citians really are. Read more from curiousKC, Eats & Drinks and People & Places.


Video Series

Our legacy for visual storytelling is apparent when our talented producers get behind the camera. These immersive experiences are released by chapters, so you can binge watch or go at your own pace. Find all of our Video Series here.

— As always, follow Flatland @FlatlandKC for more of the stories that matter to you.
