The San Francisco 49ers may be playing in Miami on Sunday, but there’s another city on the mind of Bay Area football fans. That’s Kansas City, home of the Chiefs, the team that stands between the Niners and a sixth Super Bowl trophy. And just like there’s more to San Francisco than the Golden Gate Bridge and cable cars, there’s more to Kansas City than barbecue and jazz. In a special joint broadcast, we’ll check in with Steve Kraske, host of Up To Date on NPR member station KCUR, for a snapshot of life there and to talk some friendly Super Bowl smack. Then, sportswriter C.W. Nevius joins us to preview the game.
