Great Discussions

Hard to believe that a program of this caliber will stay focused on just Key Biscayne. Great for the KeyRats, but I can easily see them making the jump to a much larger audience (local NPR?). Opinions yes, but old school discussions where both sides of a topic are thoroughly covered. I am old enough to enjoy conversations longer than a “tweet”. Nice job guys, and thanks for making the live program available for listening at a later time.
