04/29/15: One Spark Postmortem; Going Green, Sustainable Fisheries; Player's Championship; One Jax

  The founders of One Spark look to the next phase of the crowdfunding festival. The third annual crowdfunding festival is undergoing an independent audit to determine its impact. Co-Founder Elton Rivas joins us with more.

Then later, Going Green looks at sustainable fisheries.

Understanding the importance of fisheries conservation, responsible and sustainable commercial fishing practices, sourcing local seafood and traceability that ensures seafood either purchased by restaurateurs, or sold to consumers, is the real deal.

How can consumers ensure safe and responsibly harvested seafood - from sea to table? Especially when recent headlines prove some of the seafood in the supply chain was fished under conditions of modern-day slavery.

Food consultant Jeff Spear of the Studio Spear firm joins us in studio.

And joining us by phone, TJ Tate, Director of Seafood Sustainability for the National Aquarium in Baltimore.

It’s all part of today’s Going Green.

Plus - a conversation with Matt Rapp of THE PLAYERS Championship.

And One Jax honors the top humanitarians in town.
