On Radioactivity Thursday, we looked at the weird and wonderful history of the Sunshine State.  Our guest Craig Pittman has written a new book titled Oh, Florida: How America’s Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country, which chronicles bizarre stories of corrupt officials, notable natives, quirky sex scandals and the origins of famous landmarks like Walt Disney World. Craig Pittman is a native Floridian and award winning reporter with the Tampa Bay Times; who for years has been one of the state’s top environmental reporters.
