Meet some of Florida's most fascinating personalities in this entertaining kaleidoscope of interviews. Made in Florida showcases a colorful lineup of notable people who got their start in the state and who have helped make it the unique, diverse place it is today. Hear from Carl Hiaasen and Dave Barry about their weirdest writing inspirations. Discover why Shaquille O'Neal never complains. Find out what happens when Burt Reynolds goes to Costco. Listen to Theresa Manuel's experiences as one of the first black women to compete in the Olympics. Learn about the lives of Seminole Tribe elder Louise Gopher, pop art painter Romero Britto, NASA senior executive JoAnn Morgan, circus daredevil Bello Nock, football coach Steve Spurrier, state CFO Alex Sink, and Muhammad Ali's "fight doctor" Ferdie Pacheco. These and other stars--many of whom rarely give such extensive interviews--talk family and work, joys and worries, failures and triumphs, dislikes and desires. Their words are thoughtfully selected from ten years of conversations with journalist Art Levy. Each person tells a different story of Florida from a perspective all their own. Listen in and get ready to laugh and lament, to be surprised and inspired.
