Uber and Lyft

The Jacksonville City Council is currently debating how and whether ride-for-hire companies like Uber and Lyft which have disrupted the traditional taxicab model here in North Florida.

City Councilman Matt Schellenberg is chair of that body’s Vehicles for Hire Committee

He joins us to discuss the issue.

St. Augustine Distillery

The St. Augustine Distillery has seen success since it opened in the city's restored historic ice plant three years ago.

While the craft distillery has gained a loyal following during that time, its owners have also worked to lobby Florida's state legislature to change the way it regulates liquor sales and distribution.

We speak with Michael Diaz, CFO and co-founder of the St. Augustine Distillery, about their efforts.
