08/13/15: POLITICO Reporter Marc Caputo; JASMYN; Charles Shaughnessey; Kerry Speckman


Marc Caputo, Florida reporter for POLITICO, joins us to discuss the current special session to redraw the state's Congressional district map after a Florida Supreme Court ruling found they violated anti-gerrymandering amendments. We also discuss potential challengers to Rep. Corrine Brown's seat now that her district will likely be changed.


JASMYN, the local nonprofit working to support and empower Northeast Florida LGBTQ youth, will hold its annual costume party fundraiser. This year's theme is "Feel the Fantasy." Cindy Watson, Executive Director of JASMYN, and Bruce Musser, JASMYN Board Chair, join us with more.

We speak with "The Nanny" star Charles Shaughnessey about his career and his role in the Alhambra Theatre's production of "Harvey."

And Kerry "The Specktator" Speckman joins us with a look at this weekend's events.
