Description

Episode 33 of RICHES Podcast Documentaries: Launch Consoles: A Forgotten History. RICHES Podcast Documentaries are short form narrative documentaries that explore Central Florida history and are locally produced. These podcasts can involve the participation or cooperation of local area partners.

Episode 33 explores how the Central Florida landscape is littered with the results of sinkhole activity, how sinkholes are caused, and the inception and eventual cancellation of the Florida Sinkhole Institute. This podcast features an interview with Dr. Frank Kujawa.

Abstract

In 1981, the international media descended upon Winter Park, Florida to report on a residents claim that a tree in her yard suddenly vanished. Within three days, a hole had opened in the ground over 17 feet deep and 350 feet wide. In this podcast, Dr. Frank Kujawa explains how the Central Florida landscape is littered with the results of sinkhole activity. He also talks about how sinkholes are caused. The Florida Sinkhole Institute was profoundly affected by the Winter Park event and Dr. Kujawa describes its inception and eventual cancellation as a program at the university.
