If Tiger King has taught us anything it’s that there is a ferocious appetite for news stories about absolute disaster people. In that spirit each night during the 10 o’clock hour I enjoy playing a game with you, the listener, called Florida or Australia. The rules are simple: I’ll tell you about a news story on the air and you text or call in and tell me if you think the story happened in Florida or Australia.(because those two places seem to have a high concentration of craziness.)Fridays are a special wildcard edition where I ask you to determine if the stories are homegrown crazy or imported from other countries. Here are tonight’s stories:
