    A Happy Mothers Day Episode From 2017 With Geoff Douville & Joel's Mom

    A Happy Mothers Day Episode From 2017 With Geoff Douville & Joel's Mom

    Recorded in June of 2017, Geoff & Joel did a segment called ‘We Call You', in which we called prospective guests on air without giving them an advance heads up. In this show, we called Joel’s Mom (at the 37-minute mark) without notice and she rolled with it. We talked about growing up as a latchkey kid in the 70s inspired by Bill Burrs show F is for Family and southern food.
    Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms, and to all the sons and daughters who love them.

2 months listening. Very Impressed.

I love everything about this podcast; the diverse subject matter with music as a through line, the politics, the pro-culture takes, the intelligence, the wit, the voices of the hosts, the courageous conversations and the education I continue to receive. I know what it means to miss New Orleans and this podcast has helped me assuage my saudade. For me, the single best moment of podcasting I’ve ever heard was the sound of rain pouring down in Gentilly through their open window on a recent podcast. So much love to these guys. Also, eff cancer.

Finally a straightforward New Orleans culture podcast!

Definitely recommended for people that want to hear conversations about New Orleans current events & culture, without any of dreaded, all too frequent tourism-promotion angle.

Produced by those in the know for those in the know.
