“When we started in 2018, I wasn’t sure we’d make 10 episodes let alone 100. I’m proud of the accomplishment and look forward to sharing more stories from impactful individuals from our industry,” John Lux, Executive Director of Film Florida and host of the podcast said. “Almost every guest has some link to Florida, whether they were born here, grew up here, live here, work here or have worked here. Florida has such a deep, somewhat underappreciated history in the film, television and digital media industry and our goal is to tell these important stories. I hope listeners learn more about the history, economic impact, and overall importance that our industry plays in Florida’s past, present and future.”
