Joshua Johnson knew he had a huge act to follow when he took over for public radio legend Diane Rehm in January 2017.

But "The Diane Rehm Show" host made the transition incredibly smooth for Johnson.

By not really doing anything at all.

After Rehm decided to retire, the veteran NPR journalist brought Johnson on her program in November 2016 to introduce him to listeners.

The Caribe Indians on the island of Hispaniola taught the Spanish how to use green wood lattices to make barbacoa—or what we now know as barbecue. A staple of the islanders’ diet was the wild hog. The locals called the animals boucan, and that French word eventually came to be applied to many of the wild seafaring island men: buccaneers.

SHRIMP AL AJILLO

To say this dish is forward in its robust flavors might just be an understatement. It is a dish that means “Shrimp and Garlic”. I include a different version of this Pan-Latin classic in my previous book, “Norman’s New World Cuisine”.  I am unapologetic in my fervor for big lusty flavors and this is a champion of proving so. If you must you could cut back on the garlic but please don’t tell me.

Yield: Serves 4

½ Cup pure olive oil

On Tuesday, Florida House leaders proposed a higher-education budget that includes cuts prompting state universities and colleges to spend money from their reserve funds. WLRN’s education reporter, Jessica Bakeman, joined the program. She is in Tallahassee covering the legislative session.

Unlike other state agencies, colleges and universities do not need to send their leftover general revenue back to the state treasury each year. The House argues that schools keep those dollars and as a result funds have grown, explained Bakeman.
