 We broadcast live from the 2015 Generation W Women's Leadership Conference. Generation W founder Donna Orender joins us to discuss how the conference began and some of its noteworthy guest speakers.

We also look at the week's biggest news stories with our media roundtable. Topics include the mayoral and sheriff's elections, and the Jacksonville City Council rejecting a pension reform deal seven years in the making.

Dr. K.C. Nicolaou, the Harry C. and Olga K. Wiess Professor of Chemistry at Rice University, joins us to discuss his talk at UNF this week. His research group first synthesized the widely used anti-cancer drug, Taxol, and a number of other drugs used today for treatment of cancers, leukemia and others.

We speak with Kristen Walker and Rachel East, Generation W speakers and founders of the life-coaching business for millennials Clarity on Fire.

And we get a preview of the pop-up theatre piece "love & information" from director Barbara Colacello.
