On the Florida Roundup, we discuss the week's news with local journalists. 

Gay Marriage And Miami-Dade Human Rights Ordinance

A federal appeals court ruled that Florida's stay on a gay-marriage ban case will be lifted on  Jan. 5, 2015, and couples could begin walking down the aisle the next day. But will it go to the U.S. Supreme Court? Also,  Miami-Dade voted this week to make it illegal to discriminate against transgender people. 

U.S. And Cuba Relations

In Coral Gables, Jeb Bush criticized Pres. Obama's softening stance on Cuba and his views for tougher standards on the communist island. Was it a sign to a presidential run? We'll discuss the meaning behind it as well as the fifth anniversary to Alan Gross' detention in Cuba.

Art Basel

It’s Art Basel week, and the events have moved beyond Miami Beach. We made a Twitter bot asking for your impression of the works on display. We're joined by Rolando Chang Barrero, a founder of Boynton Beach Arts District.

Our hosts Christine DiMattei and Tim Padgett are joined by journalists Michael Mayo of the Sun-Sentinel, Steve Rothaus, Juan Vasquez and Jane Wooldridge from the Miami Herald, and Alicia Zuckerman of WLRN.
