Flooding in Jacksonville after Hurricane Irma.
Robert Torbert

Resilience is all about dealing with the effects of climate change. Living on the First Coast, with our abundant waterways, tributaries and climate issues, we have a great need to come up with solutions.

Guest: Anne Coglianese, chief resilience officer for the city of Jacksonville.

Hurricane season 

Hurricane season has begun in Florida, and this is expected to be another active year. Some experts say successfully combating climate change needs to focus on economic arguments.

Guest:  Bob Keefe, author of "Climatenomics: Washington, Wall Street and the Economic Battle to Save Our Planet."

Jacksonville’s bicentennial

The Jacksonville bicentennial is set to take place this weekend. A local civil rights rally is planned for the same time as the city's celebration, and a Ron DeSantis Flotilla hosted by the Republican Party of Duval County will take place at noon Saturday.

Guest: Dean Black, chairman, Republican Party of Duval County.

Taco Board 

Everyone’s heard of a charcuterie board, but you probably haven’t had a taco board. El Jefe Tex-Mex in Murray Hill has just started serving them.

Guest: Mark Lynn, El Jefe manager.
