My Favorite Podcast

Came to NOLA for the first time several years ago and fell in love with the city. Went back every year since and the podcast is a great informational tool between trips. Enjoy all the historical episodes as well as the current event covering shows. Currently going back to past episodes and listening to what I misssed before I started listening.

Thanks for this!

Love the podcast! As a Minnesotan heading to New Orleans in a week (and loving Louisiana) to get married this is wonderful. I’ll be probably listening until we get off the plane.
