E4 – FLORIDA FAILS! (with Jasmine Turner)

In this (insanely overdue) episode, Erik and Chris talk to local historian, and fellow Floridian, Jasmine Turner – about some of the crazier stories from their state’s history! Everything from Ponce de Leon and “the Fountain of Youth” to ‘the original Florida man’, Mayor William Cottrell. Also on this episode: Henry Flagler, Walt Disney, Fort Mose, the Great Jacksonville fire, floating nuclear power plants, how the US government poured millions of dollars into a cross-state canal that never happened, and much much more…
