On this episode of Intersection we talk to 90.7’s Danielle Prieur and Abe Aboraya about their investigation into the death of Transportation Security Officer Rob Henry, and workplace culture at the TSA.

Ted Yoho and Darren Soto, and union representative Deb Hannah about potential legislative solutions.    
Intersection: What’s Next For Puerto Rico; Community Partnership Schools; Update On The Guardianship Program
Wanda Vasquez, Puerto Rico’s former Justice Secretary, was sworn in as governor of the island last week, bringing some stability after weeks of protest that prompted the exit of former governor Ricardo Rosello.  Can Vasquez build trust with Puerto Rican residents frustrated and angry with political corruption, and with the slow pace of recovery after hurricane Maria?   On this episode of Intersection, we’ll talk to Miami Herald reporter Bianca Padro Ocasio, who was in Puerto Rico covering the protests.  Then– community partnership schools take a holistic approach to education, by bringing together healthcare and other community resources. 90.7’s Brendan Byrne talks with UCF’s Amy Ellis, and Jarvis Wheeler with the Children’s Home Society of Florida about this unique approach, and new funding to grow the program.  And with the spotlight on Florida’s guardianship program after the death of a 75 year old man who had a Do Not Resuscitate order filed against his will– we’ll have a conversation with the Orlando Sentinel’s Monivette Cordeiro about her reporting on the case– and what steps are being taken to address problems with the troubled program.   
Intersection: Newspaper Consolidation; El Paso Shooting; New Music From Amy Robbins
Gannet and GateHouse announced a merger this week. Gannett’s newspapers include USA Today and Florida Today, while GateHouse papers include the Florida Times Union, the Palm Beach Post and the Gainesville Sun.  The deal would create a newspaper giant with a circulation of 8.7 million, and the aim is to combat declining ad revenue and circulation. So where does that leave newspapers in Florida– the journalists who report the news and the people who read it?  On this episode of Intersection, we dive into the fine print of the merger and what it means for the news business with Rick Brunson, associate instructor of journalism at UCF; Sara Fischer, media reporter for Axios, and Rick Edmonds, media business analyst with Poynter. Then- El Paso residents are grieving. The town on the border of Texas and Mexico was one of two communities hit by mass shootings last weekend. The tragedy in El Paso has deeply affected residents just across the border too.  We speak to Lauren Villagran, a border reporter for the El Paso Times and the USA Today Network about how the community has responded to the shooting.  And singer songwriter Amy Robbins joins us to perform a couple songs and talk about her new album: Maple Sparrow.
