New Findings In FIU Bridge Collapse, Shark Vision & Female Comedians Talk 'Me Too' Movement

Miami Herald reporters Andres Viglucci and Nicholas Nehamas recently reported on significant cracks that were found in the Florida International University bridge’s foundation 10 days before its collapse. They spoke on Sundial about their story, “Cracks where FIU bridge buckled may have signaled 'imminent failure.’”

After our conversation with the reporters, a bystander at the bridge's collapse contacted the reporters to inform them about a crane operator who left the scene minutes after the bridge collapsed. It is still unclear at this point why the crane operator left the scene, however a lawyer from the crane company said the crane was removed to clear the way for emergency vehicles. 

David Gruber is a marine biologist and a fellow at Harvard’s Radcliffe Institute, who developed a shark eye camera that shows how sharks view their environment. He joined Sundial to talk about how seeing the ocean through the eyes of a shark can help us better understand their ecosystem and interactions with other sea animals.

Local comedians Debbie Ann, Angela Nacca and Kim Huapaya joined Sundial to talk about the upcoming all female comedy show“Broads: A Night of Stand Up Comedy,” inspired by the “Me Too” and “Times Up” movements. The comedy show will take place at Center Stage Performing Arts in Boca Raton on Friday, May 18 at 7 p.m.
