On the next leg of his American adventure, Michael Portillo hits cowboy central in the former meat-packing capital of America – Kansas City, Missouri. In Paola, Kansas, Michael auctions livestock to the latter-day John Waynes of the state and then dines out on smoky spare ribs. In the West Bottoms district, he explores the city’s Irish heritage and discovers the first Irish business opened in America, still family- owned and run by the great granddaughter of the founder.

Michael joins the Jayhawks basketball team in the famous Allen Field house stadium with energetic encouragement from their cheerleaders, before travelling through Tornado Alley to Topeka to meet one of the first storm chasers in America.
