Craig and Chadd begin this week's episode discussing a recent list of Florida's "secret" tourist destinations. This week's interview is with Colette Bancroft, editor and contributor to Tampa Bay Noir, a collection of fictionalized crime short-stories set in the Tampa Bay area.
Award-winning author of Oh, Florida!: How America’s Weirdest State Influences the Rest of the Country, The Scent of Scandal, Cat Tale and Manatee Insanity, and co-author of Paving Paradise. Born in Pensacola, he graduated from Troy State University in Alabama, where his muckraking work for the student paper prompted an agitated dean to label him “the most destructive force on campus.” Since then he has covered a variety of newspaper beats and quite a few natural disasters, including hurricanes, wildfires and the Florida Legislature. His next book will be titled The State You’re In.
