With more and more people moving to Miami everyday, congestion is everywhere – on the major thoroughfares as well as the neighborhood streets.  In this episode, local architects and cycling enthusiasts, Victor Dover and Maricé Chael, are encouraging more people to ditch their cars and hop on public transportation and bicycles to get to where they want to go and make better use of their time.

As architects and urban planners, Victor and Maricé know that a city’s design can have major implications on how people choose to commute and enjoy the outdoors. They also believe that with some small changes we will be able to not only improve how we get around South Florida but also improve our personal lives by using our local transit system and bicycles.

One way they are bringing awareness and exposing more people to these alternate forms of transportation is an event they are behind called Wheels. Taking place November 11th through November 15th, you can learn how to bike, walk, and use the public transit system to get around Miami.  There will be a conference, a Family Festival, the first-ever Bike-in Street Bash with live bands and more. Plus it’s all free!

We hope you enjoy listening to this passionate couple and that you’ll be inspired to go outside, enjoy the great outdoors and the Miami Bike Scene.

Hip hop is everywhere nowadays…television, advertisements, billboards and even the slang that’s become a natural part of our lexicon.  Why has this music permeated our culture in such a powerful way?  This music, which was founded in the streets of New York City as a form of expression in the urban communities, has cemented its status as a successful and profitable genre.

Eric F. Narciandi or DJ EFN, began his love affair with hip hop as a kid growing up in the 80’s/90’s in Miami’s Kendall neighborhood. Inspired by groups such as NWA and Public Enemy, he knew he wanted to be involved in the hip hop scene so he created Crazy Hood Productions after graduating from high school. He helped put Miami on the map as a legitimate hip hop city, bringing its special flavor to the masses.

In 2012, after learning of a thriving hip hop scene in Cuba, he decided to explore his roots through his passion of music and from this the ‘Coming Home: Cuba’ documentary was birthed.  Now with two more films under his belt and a planned trip to Vietnam to start filming his fourth, DJ EFN is on a mission to unearth and share with us hip hop communities and cultures that are worlds away.

His passion for this art form that many said was just a fad is apparent and it was a real pleasure getting to know him. We hope you enjoy the show.
