The Varsity Kansas City podcast

The Varsity Kansas City podcast is hosted by Link 2 Lee’s Summit’s Nick Parker. The podcast began as an effort to create an entertaining venue to feature the thousands of student-athletes in our communities. Each week, during the high school sports seasons, Parker is joined by sports writers and experts from throughout the Kansas City, MO for a panel discussion designed to highlight and feature the players and coaches comprising Kansas City’s varsity sports scene.

Regular panelists include:

  • Cody Thorn, Platte County Citizen

  • Fred Liggett, Lee’s Summit Tribune

  • Adam Burns, Courier-Tribune

  • Michael Smith, The Examiner

  • Troy Chrisman, Blue Springs School District

Whether we’re current athletes, former athletes, spectators, or even a combination of these, our interest in sports likely started because the games were fun. Sports should be fun — especially high school sports. So much of our communities’ identities and social interaction is intertwined with high school activities, we ventured to create a media service reminding ourselves, and you, of this role.

We invite you to subscribe to our podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, Spotify or your favorite podcast app. Have an idea, or suggestion, for the Varsity Kansas City crew? Contact Nick Parker.
