This week on Florida Matters we're hosting another edition of our monthly news roundtable. We'll talk with a panel of journalists about some of the latest news stories impacting our state including last week's shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School that left 17 people dead.

In this preview, host Robin Susssingham talks with Zac Anderson, political editor at the Sarasota Herald Tribune and Jessica Bakeman, reporter with WLRN in Miami.

Bakeman has been covering the aftermath of the shooting in South Florida and says the mood among some survivors is beginning to change.

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.
