Intersection: Day Care Oversight, Eclipse Viewing and Classical Musicians

DCF has shut down Little Miracles Academy, the Orlando day care where 3 year old Myles Hill was found dead in a van. At a press conference, the day care’s co-owner offered a tearful apology and asked for forgiveness, but Myles Hill’s family say they want answers.

And we talk bananas, basketball and playing very old, very expensive instruments with musicians Steven Lin and Francisco Vila Haas.
