Guests for Sundial on Thursday, March 1: 

WLRN education reporter Jessica Bakeman joined us from Tallahassee for an update on budget talks and gun legislation from the state's capital. Bakeman also provided insight on the impact Miami-Dade County Public School's Superintendent Alberto Carvalho departure would have if he decided to take a job offered to him as chancellor of New York City public schools. (Carvalho declined the offer later that day.) 

Investigative reporter Mike Spies profiled former National Riffle Association (NRA) president and key lobbyist Marion Hammer for The New Yorker. He joined the program to tell us how the NRA and lobbyists influence legislation and lawmakers.
