Well done

Glad to be able to get Florida NPR on a podcast.

Biased and Rude

The interviews I’ve listened to refuse to find middle grounds on facts and refuse to get to the heart of issues, they’re literally looking for an echo chamber to hear their own thoughts reflected. Got through 2 episodes and just can’t. They’re hurting Florida by being unable to not interject their own opinions in subjects.

Looking elsewhere for Florida Issues

This show should be good, but some how is more painful than useful. First, production is poor, voices fade in and out , telephone lines seem unreliable. Guests are often inarticulate or speculative rather than the best possible authority. Hosts are flat as radio personalities and seem unaware of the need to be more dynamic for an interesting show. West coast and panhandle could be more present. Other than that topics are good.
