Must listen. This podcast is a thorough examination of what happened to the people of New Orleans during and after Hurricane Katrina. Vann tackles the subject from multiple angles by speaking to residents, experts and public officials.

Description

Some call it Hurricane Katrina. Some call it the Federal Flood. Others call it the day the levees broke. On August 29, 2005, the city of New Orleans was submerged. That story of hubris, incompetence, and nature's wrath is now etched into the national consciousness. But the people who lived through the flood and its aftermath have a different story to tell. A story of rumors, betrayal, and one of the most misunderstood events in American history. Hosted by Vann R. Newkirk II.
