Today we have Peter Kageyama, urban activist and author of For the Love of Cities, to discuss what it takes to make a livable and emotionally engaging city. We look at several factors that have contributed in making St.Petersburg such a desirable place to live over the past decade, and if sister city Tampa can recreate the same vibrancy in its urban core. Kageyama will be a keynote speaker for a conversation called “For the Love of St.Pete”, hosted by St. Petersburg Sunset Rotary Foundation and the St. Petersburg Young Professionals, that will be held at The Museum of Fine Art on Beach Drive on Wednesday at 6 pm.
Then we listen to last Friday’s episode of Florida This Week, moderated by Radioactivity host Rob Lorei. We focus on the medicaid expansion debate that will likely drive the State Legislature into a special session. Panelists include: former US congressman Jim Davis, Former St.Pete Mayor Rick Baker, USF Political Science Professor Dr. Susan MacManus, and Adam Smith, Political Editor at the Tampa Bay Times.
