On Radioactivity Monday we air an episode of Florida This week, a political talk show that airs Friday nights on WEDU that is moderated by Rob Lorei. Our expert panel of political insiders and analysts discuss the hottest stories in state and national politics: the coffee shop confrontation of Gov. Rick Scott by an angry constituent that has gone viral; The federal government begins a civil rights investigation into problems at some Pinellas County schools; Congressional investigators find several possible violations of the law and congressional rules in the political and business dealings of Congressman Alan Grayson; and two local mayors says PayPal can move here if it doesn’t like discriminatory laws in North Carolina.
We also joined by Cecil Greek, associate professor of sociology at USF, who has organized a forum about the TBX project, an interstate expansion plan that has drawn the ire of the local communities that it will affect. The forum will take place Tuesday April 12 at the social science building at USF, in Room 151 at 7 pm and will be moderated by Radioactivity Host Rob Lorei.
