A part of our celebration of Walter Edgar's Journal at 21 we present an encore from 2014, with guest John Shelton Reed, talking about his book, Dixie Bohemia: A French Quarter Circle in the 1920s.In the years following World War I, the New Orleans French Quarter attracted artists and writers with low rent, a faded charm, and colorful street life. By the 1920s Jackson Square became the center of a vibrant but short-lived bohemia. A young William Faulkner and his roommate William Spratling, an artist who taught at Tulane, were among the "artful and crafty ones of the French Quarter." In Dixie Bohemia: A French Quarter Circle in the 1920s (LSU Press, 2012) John Shelton Reed introduces Faulkner's circle of friends ranging from the distinguished Sherwood Anderson to a gender-bending Mardi Gras costume designer and brings to life the people and places of New Orleans in the jazz age.Dr. John Shelton Reed is the William Rand Kenan Jr. Professor Emeritus of sociology at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, where he was director of the Howard Odum Institute for Research in Social Science for twelve years and helped found the university's Center for the Study of the American South and the quarterly Southern Cultures.

Originating from New Orleans, LA...ON THE SHOW... Vic DelGiorno "THE "KING OF ALL PODCASTING" & Co-hosts Nick, Ted, & Derek from "Selling The Big Easy" on HGTVSpecial Guest: David C Webb from Mobile, ALDiscussed on this show:- David's open letter to Mayor Cantrell- Smoking pot openly in New Orleans- Homeless issues in New OrleansAn open letter to the  The City Of NOLA & Mayor LaToya Cantrell: Your City Has Lost Its Way. Mayor Cantrell -I'm just like any other visitor to your city. I came from Alabama this weekend with my 16 year old son to participate in an all-weekend travel baseball tournament at various locations around New Orleans: Avenger Field, UNO, and Belle Chase High School. It's been almost 10 years since we were last here. Personally, I've been to your City dozens of times since childhood, thru my high school & college years, as a business professional for seminars and shows, as a sports spectator and concert goer, as a father of a family of 4 on vacation, and now as a run-of-mill visitor here for a purpose. While visiting this weekend, it was my intent to carve out some time to see the normal historic downtown hotspots we've always gone to in the past as a family: Canal St, Bourbon St, French Market, Riverboat, Cafe Du Mon, the River Walk, Aquarium, Jackson Square, etc. while also playing our baseball games. And we did. And it was eye-opening to say the least. I thought I'd put my observations together in this letter so you could grasp what a visitor sees today in the specific areas/places I mentioned above. First, the blight you have in the downtown area is unfathomable. Entire huge buildings off of I-10 are eye sores, and the first thing visitors see driving into the City. There are numerous dilapidated buildings with no windows, no ply board, graffitied, and/or rusted beyond repair. They are abandoned tired old structures that show scars of Katrina's aftermath I'm sure; a storm from over 16 years ago. Second, the stench is horrific. There's always been that sewage/garbage smell associated with the old sections of New Orleans. Such smells we've picked up on as a kid while visiting. And we understand why it's like that. Once conditioned to it, it's pretty much been normal, acceptable, and tolerable because that's just how it is. You know it's going to smell so you just ignore it as best you can and move along with enthusiastic intentions of enjoying the sights, the music, the food, and everything else we've fondly grown to love about NOLA. But there's one problem now that knocks ya down almost as soon as you get out of your car: WEED. Marijuana. Dope. However you want to call it. It's absolutely disgusting. Visitors and locals are smoking that trash in plain view, out in the open, on the streets, in front of kids, families, and your police. And they (police) do nothing about it. Perhaps you have a stand-down order in place to enforce drug use on your streets? Whether it's for political reasons, a thinly-stretched understaffed police force, or sheer ambivalence, it is destroying your City in my opinion. Allowing people to blatantly smoke weed on your streets is a nasty travesty. It's also going to cost NOLA in the long run. Promise. Your City has lost its way with allowing this drug trash to run rampant.Third, your homeless are in need of attenSupport the show (https://www.allovertheroadpod.com/)

Episode 425. Part 1 of our interview with Denise Bates and Linda Langley about Coushatta Baskets and the people who make them. Louisiana Coushatta Basket Makers brings together oral histories, tribal records, archival materials, and archaeological evidence to explore the fascinating history of the Coushatta Tribe's famed basket weavers. After settling at their present location near the town of Elton, Louisiana, in the 1880s, the Coushatta (Koasati) tribe developed a basket industry that bolstered the local tribal economy and became the basis for generating tourism and political mobilization. The baskets represented a material culture that distinguished the Coushattas as Indigenous people within an ethnically and racially diverse region. This week in Louisiana history. July 10, 1941.

​Listed on the National Register of Historic Places as an historic building within the Vieux Carre Historic District, the New Orleans Pharmacy Museum showcases its extensive collection and provides interpretive educational programs to present and preserve the rich history of pharmacy and healthcare in Louisiana; past and present. THE HISTORY OF LOUIS J. DUFILHO, JR. America's First Licensed Pharmacist Dufilho's most significant contribution to the history and integrity of the field of pharmacy took place in New Orleans in 1816. In 1804, the State of Louisiana, led by Governor Claiborne, passed a law that required a licensing examination for pharmacists wishing to practice their profession. Prior to this law and before Louisiana became a U.S. State, there were some informal territory licensing measures, but none were enforced. A person could apprentice for six months and then compound and sell his or her own concoctions without any regulations or standards. The public received incorrect doses and erroneous medications. In 1804, Governor Claiborne established a board of reputable pharmacists and physicians to administer a three-hour oral examination given at the Cabildo in Jackson Square. Louis J. Dufilho, Jr. was the first to pass the licensing examination, therefore making his pharmacy the first United States apothecary shop to be conducted on the basis of proven adequacy. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/loren-alberts/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/loren-alberts/support

This weeks episode is EXTRA special!! Dan and Lynze recorded on the road, from one of the most haunted cities in America, NEW ORLEANS!! Dan and Lynze love NOLA, which is no secret. This week the pair was on the road and wanted to try out recording an episode while away from their recording studio in Coeur D'Alene, ID. As the world starts to reopen, Dan will be touring again for stand up, so now seemed like the perfect time to test out the traveling recording kit! If you're considering watching this episode on YouTube, note that this entire episode is in complete 360 degrees! With that out of the way, get ready for four stories that all take place in New Orleans! Does is get any spoopier than NOLA themed stories, recorded in NOLA. "Guests began to witness what they would later think was the Chef’s ghost in the dining rooms or near the front door. Sometimes smiling at a guest. A few even claimed he asked them if they’d enjoyed their meal. Does the Chef not know he’s dead? Has his love for Brennan’s tied him to the building? Is there something paranormally “sticky” about the location, for lack of a better term, that allowed hi spirit to be bound?" Dan has a great story to kick off the episode, about one of NOLA's most well known families, The Brennan's. The Brennan's own many restaurants in New Orleans and thus, have a hold on some of the oldest buildings. When one of their top chefs passes away, it would appear he is not quite ready to hang up his chef's hat. In his second story, Dan shares the tale of Louis Congo, a former slave turned executioner, and one man's possible encounter with him. Louis was freed from slavery only to be subjected to a whole different kind of hell. Did Louis enjoy torturing and killing people? Is it possible that his spirit still haunts Jackson Square, awaiting another person to break on the wheel? Lynze also has two very intense New Orleans stories. Taking place very near Jackson Square, a fan submits a story that begins at the Moon Walk. A security guard has the strangest encounter with someone that he can see but more importantly, can small. Is this a vision, a spirit or a homeless person? Stick with the story to find out if whatever it is, has the ability to leave the Moon Walk and follow the security guard to another location. In her second story, we offer a TW about suicide. Lynze shares the story of the NOLA Cannibal. Perhaps you have heard this tale. A story of drug use and mental illness combined with love and the aftermath of Katrina, a man murders and chops up his former lover, cooking and preserving her body. Years later, when two friends visit the scene of the crime, is the spirit of the deceased trying to communicate her story? Tune in to find out!

383. We chat with Suzanne Stone about her book, New Orleans Coffee: A Rich History. New Orleans history is steeped in coffee. Café du Monde and Morning Call started serving café au lait more than a century ago. Outside the Cathedral of St. Louis in Jackson Square, early entrepreneurs like Old Rose provided eager churchgoers with the brew, and it was sold in the French Market beginning in the late 1700s. People gathered for business, socializing, politics and auctions at five hundred coffee exchanges and shops in the 1800s. Since 1978, myriad specialty coffee shops have opened to meet increasing demand for great coffee. Author Suzanne Stone presents the full story of this celebrated tradition, including how chicory became part of the city’s special flavor. Suzanne is a volunteer docent at the Historic New Orleans Collection and is semi-retired from executive positions in nonprofit organizations. Suzanne works as a tour guide, presenting French Quarter, Garden District, culinary history, cemetery and ghost tours, as well as two unique tours: Jewish New Orleans and Women of New Orleans.

Neal and Chris talk Jazz music with New Orleans jazz legend, James Andrews, who weaves a tale of music and life while growing up in the Treme neighborhood of New Orleans. Chris and Neal further discuss the week's public market news, the expected $3T stimulus and Neal asks about the market trading up due to algorithmic trading resulting in a public market moving in the opposite direction to reality, and Chris explains price-insensitive buying. James Andrews is an American musician from New Orleans. He hails from a musical family; he is the grandson of Jesse Hill, older brother (and mentor) to Troy Andrews (better known by his stage name of "Trombone Shorty"), and cousin to Glen David Andrews and the late Travis "Trumpet Black" Hill. A trumpeter and vocalist, Andrews has the nickname “Satchmo of the Ghetto.” Raised in the Tremé neighborhood, Andrews played in a number of brass bands, including the Treme Brass Band, Junior Olympia Brass Band, and the New Birth Brass Band, before launching his own band, James Andrews and the Crescent City Allstars. He also played with multi-instrumentalist Danny Barker. In 1998, he released the album Satchmo of the Ghetto, which was produced by Allen Toussaint and featured Dr. John on all 11 tracks. In 2005, shortly after Hurricane Katrina, James Andrews was one of the first musicians to return to New Orleans following the flooding. He and his brother, Trombone Shorty, played at Jackson Square a mere 17 days after Katrina hit the area, and, at a later show at the New Orleans Jazz National Historical Park, Andrews was the first to declare "We’re gonna rebuild this city, note by note." Andrews appeared as himself in three episodes of the HBO series Treme, "Do Watcha Wanna," "Smoke My Peace Pipe," and "Yes We Can Can"

Muriel's Jackson Square is called a 'casual, fine dining' restaurant... but the only thing casual about the place might be a few of the patrons, because the food is Upscale, Contemporary Creole Cuisine! Nothing casual about that. The Bar & Courtyard, the Seance Lounge, the Plantation, all provide lovely evidence of the history packed into this building and restaurant that is Muriel's. Craft cocktails, elegant dining space, spectacular dining selections (don't forget the crawfish & goat cheese crepes! YUM), comfortable, delicious, easy to find... French Quarter at it's best.

In the years following World War I, the New Orleans French Quarter attracted artists and writers with its low rents, faded charm, and colorful street life. By the 1920s Jackson Square had become the center of a vibrant if short-lived bohemia. A young William Faulkner and his roommate William Spratling, an artist who taught at Tulane University, resided among the "artful and crafty ones of the French Quarter."

                    This week is part one of the conversation Brandi and Michelle had about the past few weeks and Brandi's road trip through the midwest and all of the interesting, and inspiring things she found. Inspiration on the Road (Part 1) - Episode 104 Michelle’s week: For starters, Michelle almost got a "breakup haircut" not because she broke up with anyone, but because so much has been changing and happening in her life that she wanted to control one thing. Fortunately, she didn't change it that much and she got a great haircut. She's just in a place where change isn't bad it just feels bad. And Michelle finally saw Bohemian Rhapsody finally! Go, Michelle!   Takeaways from this episode/Brandi’s family road trip: Still recovering and trying to remember all that she did on her family road trip. Brandi had been to all the places they stopped before except for the Nashville Jacksonville area and Chicago. Starting in New Mexico they drove to Texas.  In Houston Texas, they wanted to go to the Johnson Space Center. They also stopped in Huntsville Alabama to see the largest space museum. In Houston, they specifically saw the Saturn 5 rocket which is 60 feet taller than the Statue of Liberty! Fun fact that Brandi loved was that when building the campus for the Johnson Space Center, they designed it like a college campus so as to create a community. What stuck with Brandi from the space center though was on a timeline of the space race. At the very end was blank vinyl with nothing on it, and to Brandi, that blank space meant the future; it meant where we can and hopefully will add to the timeline.  The Monument Au Fantome by French sculptor Jean Dubuffet was another fun stop in Houston. Jean Dubuffet also designed another sculpture that Chicago and Brandi had already seen a sculpture if his while on her trip to New York. The good thing to note is that Galveston is the best beach ever! For Brandi, it was like swimming in a bathtub the water was so warm. And it was shallow for a way's out which made it great for swimming They also watched fresh taffy being made with like 140-year-old taffy machines in downtown Galveston. In New Orleans, after some scary flood warnings, they made it safely and got to walk around Jackson Square. Sadly they didn't walk Princess and the Frog. It was also really hot so New Orleans is much more enjoyable at night rather than during the day. Brandi had crawfish etouffee for dinner one night and she really liked it!  They stayed at the Andrew Jackson hotel where they still give you actual keys for the door which is a cute detail. And they serve your continental breakfast to you in your room on a silver platter. Super fancy!  At the French market, they had the important foods Gumbo, Jambalaya, and gator sausage. Sadly, Brandi's daughter Jasmine is a bit traumatized from being forced to eat "weird" things in New Orleans… Oops   Next stop was Nashville where they met friends Dawn and her son Johnny for cronuts at Five Daughters bakery at The Factory in Franklin Also at the Factory, Brandi found a really cool record store Sadly because of the CMA’s they didn’t to Nashville so that will be a trip for another day They also got fresh Georgia peaches (Joelle is jealous haha)  Next stop was Chicago and the first morning was rainy and cloudy and the tops of the building were disappearing in the clouds which were so pretty. For Brandi, who loves rain, this was the perfect introduction to the city for her. It was also Sunday when they got to Chicago so they took the opportunity to go to church at an old church. The pastor let them see and play the pipe organ which was a really fun experience. Brandi took the opportunity to take lots of pictures of the church building which was covered in moss and ivy.  They surprised Jasmine with a trip to the American Girl store,

Suffice it to say, Tableau s ghosts know how to make the bottles fly better than any bartender. Next, our tour of restaurant ghosts brings us to the Napoleon House. When Ralph Brennan acquired the Napoleon House in 2015, he adopted its many apparitions as well. We also stop by Tujague s to search for Julian Eltinge, the restaurant s beloved ghost, who haunts the legendary establishment in drag. We may even receive a visitation from New Orleans original celebrity chef, Madame Begue, who has some unfinished business at the second oldest restaurant in the city. We then move from New Orleans second oldest to its oldest restaurant, Antoine s, where Lisa Blount gives us a tour of their ghostliest sites.

Josh Breinlinger is a Managing Director @ Jackson Square Ventures where he has made investments in the likes of Contently, OfferUp and rented.com, just to name a few incredible companies. He is also the ultimate master of all things marketplaces, especially when early stage startups must deal with the inevitable chicken and egg problem. Prior to life as a VC with JSV, Josh was part of the founding team @ ODesk, a co-founder @ Rev and the Head of Product and Marketing @ Adroll. In Today’s Episode You Will Learn: 1.) How Josh made the transition from the world of startups to investing with Jackson Square? 2.) Josh previously said, 'data informed VCs will always beat data-driven VCs'. What makes Josh say this? What does being data-driven lead to weak investment decision making? 3.) Josh also said, 'we will see the rise of the master marketplace'. What does he mean by this? How is this different from current marketplace startups today? With such specialization does this not make it an unattractive sector for VCs with a smaller TAM? 4.) Following from Josh's statement that 'not all GMV is equal', how does that affect how Josh views; transaction size and frequency, share of wallet, value post-match being made and disintermediation? 5.) Why does Josh think rewarding VC activity is fundamentally wrong? What does it show that is, in reality, a falsehood?

You look up at Andrew Jackson atop his horse and wonder why he's there. Sure, you know about the battle of New Orleans, but what was New Orleans like in the period leading up to the War of 1812? As the battle approached, what did New Orleanians think and feel about it? What did they think would be the outcome? How about the major players in the battle itself? Listen in as we discuss these ideas and more. By the end of today's show, you'll get a sense of the battle itself, and also of New Orleans in the early 1800s.

World Footprints returned to New Orleans for our 7th annual French Quarter Festival 2-hour broadcast. This year we set up at Tableau Restaurant, Dickie Brennan's newest culinary gem in Jackson Square. This second hour of our French Quarter Festival (FQF) broadcast explores the unique history of New Orleans with two prominent professors from the University of New Orleans. The diverse heritages of the people of New Orleans makes this city very unique, interesting and alive with traditions that are not found in any other city in the country. New Orleans is a place where Africans intermingled with Native Americans and European settlers ultimately creating a sustainable culture that distinguishes New Orleans today. Dr. Mary Mitchell, History Professor at UNO, joins us to discuss the African contributions to New Orleans and the dynamics that slavery played in the development and culture of this city. Most people don’t equate compassion and beauty when they think of Voodoo, but Voodoo historian, Professor Martha Ward, says that is what she discovered when she first began researching the practice. Prof. Ward is a Professor Emeritus at UNO and author of the book, Voodoo Queen: The Spirited Lives of Marie Laveau, the only academic account of the famous New Orleanss voodoo priestess and her daughter, Marie Laveau II. Professor Ward offers a Voodoo history lesson and her belief that Hollywood and media have incorrectly racialized and stigmatized Voodoo.

From the arctic clutches of Chicagoland, I deliver to you Podcast 9. All of what you are about to hear was recorded at a party in the Elgin area. Surprisingly, almost all of my contributors and the other party guests live in the same neighborhood...something is going on in that subdivision! I apologize for the quality of the recording, although I was two rooms away, these ladies got pretty rowdy in the background. Here's hoping they invite me over again to get some more ghost stories for the podcasts. There were some serious doozies that I didn't get on the digital recorder. I begin with Sherry and I recounting my haunted birthday misadventures. I had an epic day that included a private Weird and Haunted Tour with Sunny from Weird Chicago Tours. I've told you all before, but I'm going to tell you again. There is no better tour company in Chicago. Not only taking the lead in top quality haunted tours, they also have historical tours and a Red Light District tour. New tours are being added all the time for die-hard fans like me. Weird Chicago Tours pays twice the industry standard, setting the bar higher to employ only the most knowledgeable, engaging and professional tour guides. Sherry, Arra and I stayed overnight at the Congress Hotel on the haunted 12th floor with some strange happenings that even made the Congress concierge uncomfortable! I will try to stay there again in room 441, which is the most haunted room - and no one knows why! The psychic party host, Laura tells stories about her former and current haunted residences. Sherry and Denise chime in with their experiences in Laura's old house. Denise remembers some unexplained events on the day that her mother passed. Then Sonia and her daughter, Anna, share about their haunted house. Stephanie complete's our great story round with fond memories of a ghost from her childhood house, as well as some recent paranormal events in her current home. She also gave me permission to share a couple of awesome ghost photos taken in Jackson Square, Louisiana!   TOP TOUR COMPANY IN CHICAGO FOR HAUNTED AND HISTORICAL TOURS http://weirdchicago.com/ I love seeing all the new likes on the Darkness Buried Deep Facebook Fan Page, share the scare!
