About the show

If nothing else, Florida politics is always entertaining.

Now you can hear the stories that make politics in the Sunshine State so special.

So, start the coffee and listen to the stories that are driving the day.

Welcome to SUNRISE, the daily podcast on the issues, people and policies behind The Process — and beyond.

SUNRISE features guests from all stops on the political spectrum in the Sunshine State: elected officials, consultants, and other behind-the-scenes players.

Also powered by the plugged-in journalists of Florida Politics and elsewhere. Hosted by Tallahassee broadcast veteran Rick Flagg and brought to you by Peter Schorsch, publisher and editor-in-chief of Florida Politics and "SUNBURN," the daily digest of what is hot in Florida politics.
