A gift to the future

I loved this show. Firstly, it was just well done. The host is engaging and real, the reporting feels human and interesting. I learned things I'd never have known about what went on during Katrina. It deals with the minutiae of everyday life, the emotional aspects, and so much more. Plus, this is a gift to the future, a real contribution to the public record, to the archives of New Orleans and our country and to everyone who has experienced or will experience a natural disaster.

Surprising conversations about what's left behind, a decade after 80 percent of a major city flooded

At New Orleans Public Radio, we have the tools to tell the most intimate, interesting, meaningful stories of our city. Because we are here. Because we live this place. Because for us New Orleans is not just gorgeous old houses and Creole cooking (though it is that), nor is it simply the nation's top murder rate with persistent high poverty levels (though it is that, too). By picking up some The Debris left by the floods of Hurricane Katrina, we hope to better understand this place we love, and share that with you.
