My guest this episode is Tom Eberhardt - Tommy to me. He’s a colonel with the Lee Country Sheriff’s Office, and has been serving there for 25 years. He lives here in Ft. Myers, FL with his wife, Lori. They have 2 Daughters, Rhyan and Taelor, and 2 grandkids - He LOVES his grandkids. I’ve known Tommy for about 15 years and it’s fair to say he’s forgotten more about playing guitar than I’ll ever learn, and I’ve been playing more than half my life. We shared a stage at Next Level Church for years and honestly if I list the people I know that I would consider “into music”, Tommy would be right there at the top, so I figured this show would be right up his alley.

My guest this episode is Cole Peacock. Cole’s lived in Ft. Myers since the early 80's. His family is Fifth generation Floridians. His better half is Rachel, and they have three children: Sterling, Hannah, and Jackson, two of which are all grown up, and Jackson’s getting there fast. Over the years Cole’s worn lots of different hats - he’s been a corporate executive and consultant, he’s co-founder of Game Nation Theme Parks, and he spent many years in the world of politics, from running campaigns for other candidates to being one himself when he ran for state house a few years back. If I tried to list all the business and organizations Cole’s been involved with I’d be here all day...like I said, LOTS of different hats. But, besides all of that he and his wife Rachel, and their whole family, are my old friends from waaaay back.

007 - Amy Ware

My guest this episode is Amy Ware: it’s weird to say her name out loud with just two parts, because in my head she’s been Amy Wilkinson Ware since we reconnected via Facebook whenever it started becoming a thing. Amy grew up in Fort Myers with me so we’ve known each other since...back in the day. She’s in town for a bit from the great white north so I thought I’d bring her in and submit her to the pain of having to whittle the songlist down, because I strongly suspect it was as difficult for her as any of my guests thus far.

My guest this episode is kind of a big deal in the world of public media...as a matter of fact he’s making us feel like we’re getting pretty darm fancy around here at Three Song Stories. David Brancaccio host of the Marketplace Morning report, heard on most public radio stations, including here on WGCU at 6:50 and 8:50 every weekday morning…he’s the former host of the PBS newsmagazine Now...and has worked in public media one way or another for nearly 30 years.

We'll sit down for the hour with Nathan Hill. The Naples-based novelist's first book, "The Nix," took the literary world by storm in 2016. We'll ask him what the onslaught of literary fame has been like, and how it felt to learn that great American novelist John Irving had compared his work to Charles Dickens.

My guest today is Eric Raddatz. He’s a man of many...things, known by many people around southwest Florida. He’s probably most publicly known as the man behind the Fort Myers Film Festival, which he founded in 2010. He also founded the Naples International Film Festival the year before. But, when it comes to his work Eric is definitely best known for his work as Presentation Editor at Florida Weekly. He’s one of the main forces behind the papers’ visual aesthetic. He’s also a regular contributor on NBC2 News in Fort Myers, the Creative Director at Florida Southwestern State College, and the Presentation Editor at the Babcock Ranch Telegraph.

Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg is testifying on Capitol Hill to answer questions about protecting user data. The hearing held by the Senate Judiciary and Commerce committees follows news that the data-mining and political consulting firm Cambridge Analytica obtained personal information of up to 87 million Facebook users. The firm is accused of using that information to target Facebook users with political advertising in 2016. The two Senate committees are holding a joint hearing called "Facebook, Social Media Privacy, and the Use and Abuse of Data."

My guest this episode is Lynn Millner. She’s the author of “The Allure of Immortality: An American Cult, a Florida Swamp, and a Renegade Prophet,” it’s a narrative nonfiction book about the Koreshans of Estero. And she’s an associate professor of journalism at Florida Gulf Coast University.
