Tuesday on First Coast Connect we spoke with online travel magazine Thrillist’s Miami editor Matt Meltzer who published a glowing review of Jacksonville last week, calling it a hidden gem and the most misunderstood city in America (01:11).

Portfolio Manager with Legacy Trust Family Wealth Services Chord McLaughlin spoke with us about how President Donald Trump’s tariffs are impacting the economy (26:55).  

Organizers Josh Gellers and Eddie Whistler told us about Wednesday’s inaugural Science on Tap at 6 p.m. at Intuition Ale Works where University of North Florida professors John Anderson and Jack Hewitt will discuss the possibility of intelligent life elsewhere in the universe (46:00).
