JFK and Florida

We’re privileged to be joined on this week’s Florida History Podcast by MSNBC contributor Fernand Amandi who has an uncanny historical knowledge of the Kennedy family. We discuss JFK’s extensive relationship with Florida, including spending much of his life in Palm Beach , his connections with numerous Florida elected officials and his impact on our state.
