The Florida Specifier is launching a podcast to bring a fresh perspective on the issues and people environmental professionals want, and need, to know about the most. The new show will be hosted by Brett Cyphers – host of the Water for Fighting podcast – and veteran lobbyist and former Secretary of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Ryan Matthews.
“Water for Fighting is at its core a podcast about people and the stories about their motivations and experiences”, says Cyphers. “It has been a popular format, and that won’t change. However, Ryan and I want the Florida Specifier podcast to be more about current policy issues and governance, as well as the people at the center of the action.”
Matthews and Cyphers will be the primary hosts, and they’ll incorporate guests and guest hosts into the conversations. Those will include policymakers, lobbyists, non-governmental organizations, stakeholders, and environmental professionals who are close to the action.
“Our team wants to provide environmental professionals straightforward information with a wide range of perspectives”, says Jeff Littlejohn, founder of the revamped Florida Specifier. “As part of the Specifier Online, this new podcast and Water for Fighting represent an integral part of that mission.”
In addition to the scheduled slate of guests and topics, subscribers to the Florida Specifier Online will have access to exclusive interviews and other content not available to the public. Along with Water for Fighting, the new show will be available at FloridaSpecifier.com. ●
