We all know a “Florida Man”, but how many of us want to admit to being one? In The Thing About Florida, author Tyler Gillespie takes on the strange people and stories of the Sunshine State from the perspective of a fifth-generation Florida native. Gillespie joins us to talk about what he discovered in his quest to learn more about the state we all call home.

Tyler Gillespie is a fifth-generation Floridian who went to undergrad at the University of Central Florida and did a master's program at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. He quarantined with his grandmother in Largo (near Clearwater) for the past year. His Twitter handle is @TylerMTG.
