Florida Whip-Around Coverage feat. Rep. Anna Eskamani
This week we’re talking with State Rep. Anna Eskamani from District 47 about a whole host of issues, including Gov. Ron DeSantis’ failed vaccine rollout, the role that politics and preference plays in serving citizens, the HB1 anti-protest bill and Rush Limbaugh. She also outlined a solution to fixing the broken state Democratic Party.

Later, Q and Jewish Dave are fascinated with the wheels coming off of outspoken media-adjacent people’s careers. First we get into Mike Pesca’s pathological need to debate the use of ethnic slurs and his subsequent downfall. Then, we explore why Neera Tanden’s likely failure to get confirmed by the Senate has less to do with mean tweets and more to do with EpiPens.

As part of the Great Miami Tech Migration of 2021, Mayor Francis Suarez in recent weeks has initiated interstellar communication with the Imaginary Iron Man, the original Space Karen and freshly minted Richest Dude On Earth, Elon Musk, to punch a bunch of holes in our city and uh, help… traffic? Cool.
We spoke with Alissa Walker from Curbed about the wisdom of boring enormous chambers through the porous limestone that makes up Miami, and what the environmental impact could look like for a region that is environmentally tenuous, at best.
