This week on Florida Matters we're hosting another edition of our monthly news roundtable. One topic that was all over the news this past week was white nationalist Richard Spencer's visit to the University of Florida.

In this preview, Florida Matters host Carson Cooper talks about reaction to Spencer's speech with Tampa Bay Times reporter Jeffrey Solochek and Grace King, reporter at WUFT in Gainesville.

We'll also talk about a lawsuit challenging state education law HB7069 and how federals cut to Obamacare subsidies could impact Florida.

I cover health care for WUSF and the statewide journalism collaborative Health News Florida. I’m passionate about highlighting community efforts to improve the quality of care in our state and make it more accessible to all Floridians. I’m also committed to holding those in power accountable when they fail to prioritize the health needs of the people they serve.
Carson Cooper has become a favorite of WUSF listeners as the host of "Morning Edition" on WUSF 89.7 since he took the job in 2000. Carson has worked in Tampa Bay radio for three decades.
