Today on Radioactivity, Rob Lorei welcomes Diane Roberts, professor at Florida State and an NPR commentator. Roberts is also a critic of Governor Rick Scott.

The cancellation became a news story and went viral. Yesterday she was re-invited to give the talk.

Diane Roberts serves on the board of directors of the Florida Wildlife Federation, which has battled the state in court over environmental issues, and she authored the book, Dream State: Eight Generations of Swamp Lawyers, Conquistadors, Confederate Daughters, Banana Republicans and Other Florida Wildlife. Following the death last month of former Gov. Reubin Askew, she criticized Scott and legislative leaders in a Tallahassee Democrat column for praising the late governors reforms to the skies while working to systematically undermine them.comments powered by Disqus
