'The B.S. Dictionary'

Former Daily Show correspondent Bob Wiltfong is bringing his sense of humor to the strange terms we all use at the office. It’s all in the pages of his new book, The B.S. Dictionary. Wiltfong, who now lives in our area, joined us to discuss it.

JU Survey

Jacksonville University is out with a new survey where people are asked an interesting question: What is the one place or thing in the Jacksonville metro area that any visitor should see or do before they leave? 

It was an open-ended question and they have recently coded and compiled the results. Ray Oldakowski, Ph.D., is Professor of Geography and the Environment at Jacksonville University joined us with more on the findings.
