On this episode of Intersection, UCF engineering professor Manoj Chopra joins us to explain the science of sinkholes  and insurance specialist Patrick Joy joins the conversation with tips on how to be sinkhole savvy.

Colin and his brother, Orlando Philharmonic artistic director Eric Jacobsen, join us for a conversation about brotherhood, table tennis, and the healing power of music.
