 SUBSCRIBE to the podcast

This week's Florida Matters features highlights from a recent town hall meeting in Tampa about school safety. The discussion took place in the wake of the school shootings at a high school in Parkland, and focused mainly on violence and gun control. 

But one entrepreneur on the panel had a fascinating view on innovations in school safety. On today's podcast, we hear from Pat Bhava,  the creator of the app PikMyKid, which uses technology to streamline the process of the school car line.

Robin is Senior Editor at WUSF, spearheading the station's podcasting initiatives and helping to guide the vision for special reporting projects and creative storytelling. She created The Zest, the station's podcast that's all about food, which she continues to host and serve as senior producer.
