Well done

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

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.
