We speak with City Councilman and mayoral candidate Bill Bishop about the focus of his campaign in the primary against incumbent Mayor Alvin Brown and leading GOP candidate Lenny Curry.

Ann Chinn and Ann Cobb of the Middle Passage Ceremonies and Port Markers Project join us to discuss the history of Africans in St. Augustine. The group will unveil an historic marker to commemorate the slaves who were brought to the nation’s oldest city this weekend.

Then we speak with Northeastern Univeristy researcher Jodi Beggs about how the long-running show "The Simpsons" can teach audiences about behavioral economics. Beggs will be speaking on the topic at FSCJ Kent Campus this week.
