New Orleans / Bob Edwards Weekend

In the early summer Bob had a series of interviews with New Orleans-based musicians. Super interesting. Then he interviewed people from all walks of life who live there -- the 'No Place Like Home' series of interviews. The food scene in NOLA has interested me for a while, Harry Shearer's show is often NOLA related, and now with our lab being involved with remote sensing of the oil spill and the aftermath I'm a little more connected. Here's an annotated list of the shows:

1 Preview of the Jazz Fest interviews, full Dr. John Interview
2 Ben Jaffe / Preservation Hall
3 Stanton Moore, Trombone Shorty
4 Anders Osborne, Theresa Andersson
5 Allen Toussaint
6 Irma Thomas
7 Roger Lewis
8 Jimmy Carter (Blind Boys of Alabama), 2 church deacons on life in NOLA after Katrina
9 A gulf deep-sea diver, Keely Smith, NOLA shave ice (awesome interview)
10 Jon Cleary, Preview of the No Place Like Home interviews
11 mostly about the levees
12 seafood, shrimper, duckhunter
13 oiled birds
14 wetlands (this one is particularly good)
15 how the city is doing
16 St. Bernard Parish (the 2nd story, starting ~17:45, darn good)
17 post-Katrina stuff: entrepreneurs, farmer1, farmer2 {his questions for the farmers were kind of weird, the 2nd guy answered them better}
