02/27/15: Media Roundtable Week In Review; VegFest; Red Moon Theatre Festival

Feb 27, 2015

We discuss the week's biggest news stories with our roundtable of local journalists: Eric Smith, "People and Politics" host; Tim Gibbons, Jacksonville Business Journal editor; A.G. Gancarski, Folio Weekly and Florida Politics columnist.

Topics include a local arrest related to ISIS, City Hall cutting ties with river deepening consultant Herbert Barber over his views on race, and the details of Jaguars owner Shad Khan's proposal to develop the city's Shipyards property.

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

Girls Gone Green founder Julie Watkins join us to discuss their annual Northeast Florida VegFest happening March 7 in Jacksonville.

And we get a preview of the Red Moon Theatre Festival celebrating diversity and community in Jacksonville from show producer Ian Mairs and actress Cassandra Freeman.
