06/05/15: Media Roundtable Week In Review; Gender-Based Medicine; SPAR Tour Of Homes; Pogopalooza

Media Roundtable Week in Review Logo

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Andrew Pantazi, Florida Times-Union reporter; Fred Matthews, Examiner blogger; A.G. Gancarski, Folio Weekly and Florida Politics columnist.

Topics include outgoing Mayor Alvin Brown's legacy, Mayor-elect Lenny Curry's transition, the issues facing the new City Council and more.

We also roundup the strange, bizarre and just plain ridiculous news from across the Sunshine State in our Only in Florida segment.

Dr. Marjorie Jenkins, director and chief scientific officer with the Laura W. Bush Institute for Women’s Health and a national expert in sex and gender-based medicine, joins us with a preview of her lecture at Baptist Health's "Women's Health: Why Gender Matters" event.

We discuss the Springfield Preservation and Revitalization (SPAR) Council's Historic Springfield Tour of Homes this weekend with SPAR Executive Director Christina Parish.

And we look at the Xpogo world championship event, Pogopalooza, happening in Hemming Park this week with Nick Ryan, founder and world leader of Xpogo, Vince Cavin, Executive Director of Friends of Hemming Park, and Wayne Wood, Friends of Hemming Park board member.
