This is the perfect combo of storytelling, history lessons, and humor. I love the rhythm of this podcast and the engaging host.
I’ve recently become addicted to podcasts and came across this series about New Orleans. It’s really good. On one level it's about New Orleans and it’s history - but it’s really about people and their stories. Very moving. Highly recommend.
These stories are heartfelt, quick, and are providing me with a side of Louisiana history that I did not get enough of when growing up there. I can't wait for more!
