“This season we will pass the milestone of 100 episodes of the Film Florida Podcast. We’re 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. “As I prepare for each interview I learn something new about every person or subject. If people enjoy the podcast half as much as I’ve enjoyed the conversations, it will be a big success. This gives the industry in Florida a platform to learn more than a short article or quick social media post; these are in depth stories about the people and behind-the-scenes history that make up Florida’s film, television and digital media production industry.”
