Topical Currents

David Windecher: From Defendant to Defense Attorney to Helping Others




03/08/16 - Tuesday’s Topical Currents begins with a return visit by inspiring young attorney, David Windecher.  A former North Miami gang leader, his turnabout and persistence led to his law degree and practice.  He now helps other youthful offenders.

And more, in the second half of the program:  We’ll learn about the unique Boating & Beach Bash for People with Disabilities, in Boca Raton, with its Founder, Jay van Vechten. That’s Topical Currents, Tuesday at 1pm.

Richard Ives came to WLRN in September 2000 to begin a new career in radio. Born in Fort Lauderdale, his family moved to Long Island, New York, where he grew up. After graduation from college and an unsatisfying stint in a job that, as he puts it, "paid the bills but for which I had no passion" he found himself contemplating a midlife career change after being laid-off.
