Customer Reviews

Information is awesome; format a little rough

The WBR Museum hosts regular lectures, many from visiting professors, which it records and posts. The quality of the information is very high, as the speakers have a very deep knowledge of their topics, and generally explain how they know what they know (for example, the economist/historian who explored the economic impact on the region through, among other means, records of the histories of county courthouses).

The topics are engaging as well, ranging from the impact of the steamboat on the Louisiana economy, to the history of crawfish, to a photographer who documented the effects of Katrina.

The downsides are more or less what you would imagine from this format--the sound quality is really not great, the narrative is tailored to an audience who isn't you--it's the people attending the lecture, and we're missing the visuals that are often presented with each lecture.

I'd really like to give it a 3.5 for that reason, but since I can't, I gave it a 4 to incourage anyone interested in LA history to give the podcast a try, and, for the sake of the quality of the material, to have a little patience with its drawbacks.

And thank you very much to the WBR Museum for making these lectures available to the general public--I've gleaned many surprising and enlightening piece of information from this podcast.
