Stay tuned in to our local news coverage: Listen to 90.7 WMFE on your FM or HD radio, the WMFE mobile app or your smart speaker — say “Alexa, play NPR” and you’ll be connected.
WMFE environmental reporter Amy Green has spent some 10 years reporting on the Everglades and she spent the better part of this year working on a podcast – Drained- to explore some of the details behind this mind bogglingly complex plan to restore the River of Grass. On this episode of Intersection, Green joins us for a deep dive into her reporting on the plan to save the Everglades.
Businesses have struggled throughout the pandemic, but for those that were able to adapt and survive- there’s light on the horizon. We’ll talk to a panel of business owners about how they got through the year and what’s in store for 2021. Joining the program- Matt Hinckley, owner of Hinckley’s Fancy Meats in East End Market; Dena Jalbert, CEO of Orlando-based Align Business Advisory Services; and Mauricio Toro, CEO and co-founder of Daytona Beach based Techfit Digital Surgery.
And- Orlando band Beemo returns to performing- and to Intersection- after a hiatus brought on by the pandemic. We’ll chat to the band about their new music video which involves gnomes and classic cars; and about going from the pub to the porch for socially distanced performances.
