Once known as a city for the retired, St.Petersburg has experience a rebirth over the last decade as one of the most livable cities in the countries, known for its walk-able streets and thriving arts scene. Today on Radioactivity Monday, we listen to an interview with St.Pete mayor Rick Kriseman from WEDU’s Florida this Week program, a political discussion hosted by Rob Lorei. Kriseman discusses the city’s cultural renaissance,  the potential loss of the Tampa Bay Rays to Tampa, and issues with its aging infrastructure and education for low income children.
