We're talking Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp today! Ken Babby is the owner of the Shrimp and the Rubber Ducks, Akron Rubber Ducks. He tells us about his 14 years working for the Washington Post, and what led him to his Minor League Baseball Team ownership.
DJ, rapper and queer-identifying social justice warrior GeeXella is on our show today. We discuss Duval Folx, an inclusive dance party they established in 2018, as well as the tragic car accident that shaped their life.
Josh Cobb grew up on a dairy farm before moving to Florida and slowly moving his way up the coast to Jacksonville.
