Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is more than 4,500 miles — and an entire ocean — from the Kansas City area.

But as images of a fire that raged through famed cathedral, claiming its iconic spire and two-thirds of the roof, flooded social media and television earlier this week, there's no denying it had an impact on KC and the entire world.

Reporters Cat Reid and Charlie Keegan, who’ve both visited Notre Dame, discussed the fire and why the moment resonated along with host Tod Palmer in the latest 41 Files podcast.
