It can also have ramifications for frazzled sleep partners. We’ll speak with Dr. Howell Goldberg, who prescribes dental remedies . . . and of course, take your calls. That’s Topical Currents . . . Wednesday at 1pm on WLRN-HD1 rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2.
03/05/13 - Tuesday's Topical Currents is with journalist T.D. Allman. His latest work is a ten-year project to create FINDING FLORIDA: The True History of the Sunshine State. The 500-year recorded history of the Sunshine State is rife with myths and outright deceit. Ponce de Leon did not “discover” Florida, nor did he search for a “Fountain of Youth.” He sought gold . . . but there wasn’t any. The revered Seminole figure, Osceola, was actually a mostly white man, named William Powell. Allman says Florida’s legacy is mostly “sugar-coated.” That’s Topical Currents Tuesday at 1pm, rebroadcast at 7pm on WLRN-HD2.
