Episode 84: Pirates!
Disaster was predicted when the Florida Department of Environmental Protection was given oversight of wetland development permits in state, taking that responsibility from the federal Environmental Protection Agency. Disaster has occurred. That's where we begin this week's episode.
Our guest is Matthew Frick, curator at the St. Augustine Pirate and Treasure Museum. Matthew is a pirate historian who tells us all about piracy off the coast of Florida, with an emphasis on St. Augustine.
This week's show is sponsored by the James Museum of Western and Wildlife Art in St. Petersburg which hosts the special exhibition "Away from Home: American Indian Boarding School Stories" through March 16 and by Visit Sarasota.
