KPR Presents host Kaye McIntyre spent most of her spare time in February in KPR's Studio B helping with the live assist from NPR's coverage of the impeachment, and later in the month, the primaries and caucuses on KPR2. Kaye spent so much time in KPR's Studio B that soon the office was making jokes about her new residence. We interviewed Kaye and asked about her experience during this time.

Q: Sometime in the 1930s, a northeast Kansas farmer decided to invite people to his home, serve them food and give a demonstration of how his fancy farm machinery worked. The event was a big hit. So big, in fact, that it eventually became an annual festival that continues to this day in Jefferson County. What's the name of the farmer who started the McLouth Threshing Bee?

(Extra credit if you can tell us what "threshing" is!)

Q: This man grew up in southeast Kansas and later graduated from the University of Kansas School of Pharmacy. He tried becoming a small-town druggist, but it wasn't meant to be.
