We speak with Ben Davis, owner of Intuition Ale Works, about several legal disputes between craft breweries, large beer distributors and the state of Florida that are currently coming to a head. Points of contention include small brewers not being allowed to sell their product in 64-ounce containers known as "growlers," and challenges to their ability to serve their beer in tasting rooms

Erin Ocobock, director of Resource Development with Communities in Schools, joins us to discuss the Teen Trendsetters program. This initiative lets high school students mentor elementary students who are struggling with reading.

We also welcome actor and director Daniel Baldwin to the show. He will be appearing at the St. Augustine Film Festival this weekend for a screening of his new film "The Wisdom to Know the Difference."

And Kerry Speckman joins us with all of the weekend's biggest events.
