CONVERSATIONS WORTH HEARING: A look back at the most-important in 2019

Thousands listened, as we ready for busy 2020 in FL1 Studio

More than 100 episodes of the Sunday Conversation and Inside the FLX podcast were recorded in 2019, accounting for more than 4,500 minutes of locally-inspired conversations. Elected leaders, community advocates, educators, environmental experts, and so many others joined us for important conversations in-studio. Collectively, those conversations were played across all platforms more than 50,000 times.

It’s an effort we will continue in 2020, but as we look back at 2019 – we wanted to share the most-important or interesting conversations featured.
