On today’s program, we spoke with journalist Graeme Wood about Saudi Arabia and extremism here at home and around the world.

He is in town for a World Affairs Council speaking engagement.


March is Women’s History Month, and to celebrate, FBI Jacksonville Special Agent in Charge Sherri Onks will welcome a visit from Susan Roley Malone, who was one of the first two women to graduate from the FBI Academy in 1972.

In addition to meeting with FBI employees, Malone will join Onks at the FBI Jacksonville Diversity Agent Recruitment event. But first, she joined us to discuss women rising in the ranks of the FBI and law enforcement.

Great St. Johns River Cleanup

It’s time for some spring cleaning — of the St. Johns River!

The St. Johns Riverkeeper has partnered with a number of counties throughout the St. Johns River watershed for a month-long Great St. Johns River Cleanup, running through April 22. Meredith Jespersen, development director for the Riverkeeper, and Jimmy Orth, the organization’s executive director, joined us with details.

Jumbo Shrimp

Spring has sprung, which means that it’s almost time for the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp to play ball!

Scott Kornberg, director of broadcasting and media relations, and play-by-play broadcaster for the Shrimp, joined us with a preview of the team’s upcoming season.
