Episode 86: The Amazing Life of Stetson Kennedy
The humanitarians in the Florida legislature are again providing more relief to the state's struggling and needy developers - sarcasm intended - now seeking to make it easier for developers to displace gopher tortoises. That's where we begin this week's show. Search the "Welcome to Florida" for an entire episode devoted to gopher tortoise.
Our guest is Peggy Bulger, author of "Stetson Kennedy: Applied Folklore and Cultural Advocacy," a biography of one of Florida's most interesting, if little known, characters. His obituary shares stories of a life fully lived.
Mentioned in the show: Billy Bragg and Wilco's cover of the Woody Guthrie song about Stetson Kennedy.
