  As crowds descend on downtown for the first official day of voting for One Spark 2015, the crowdfunding festival's founders Elton Rivas, Dennis Eusebio and Varick Rosete join us to discuss how it started and what is new this year.

We also learn about some of the film projects currently being screened at the MOCA Jacksonville theater from filmmakers Michael Glinski, Derek Boyd Hankerson, Keagan Anfuso, Drew Brown, and Kim Murray.

Shaun Thurston, the featured artist in MOCA's Project Atrium during One Spark 2014, joins us to reflect on his experience with the festival last year.

We find out how First Coast Magazine is producing a crowdsourced issue during the week of One Spark from publisher AJ Beson and the Dalton Agency's Michael Munz.

Amanda Dawson and Fallon Mayer of the independent student-run news bureau #IgniteMedia join us to discuss how the group is partnering with Jacksonville news media to cover One Spark events.

And we look forward to the first week of May to preview the Youth Crisis Center's Derby Day event with Kim Sirdevan, YCC President and CEO, and Matarius Phillips, YCC resident.
