For author Lan Samantha Chang, that meant drawing from her experience growing up in one of the only Chinese families in a small Midwestern town. Chang drew from these experiences to write The Family Chao, a modern-day Brothers Karamazov that centers on the story of an immigrant family in the rural Midwest. Chang is also the director of the renowned Iowa Writers' Workshop. In this episode, she talks about her heritage and how her upbringing impacted her journey as an author.

450. Part 2 of our interview with Ashley Steenson. Ashley has been researching Teddy Roosevelt in Louisiana. He came here frequently to hunt, and he set up the first national park in Louisiana, Breton Island Reservation, on November 31, 1905. "I'm a PhD student in American intellectual and political history (1850-1950) at The University of Alabama. I completed my MA in history at the University of Mississippi in May 2020. My research considers the connections between political ideologies in the South and the Northeast, primarily during the early twentieth century. I received a graduate minor in gender studies from the Sarah Isom Center in 2020 and serve as a graduate student council member for the Southern Historical Association (2021-2023)." This week in Louisiana history. January 1, 1954. KSLA TV channel 12 in Shreveport, LA (CBS) begins broadcasting   This week in New Orleans history. The first Sugar Bowl game was played there on January 1, 1935, against the Philadelphia Temple Owls. The last was on December 31, 1974 when Nebraska beat Florida 14-10. This week in Louisiana. Situated on the west bank of the Mississippi River directly across from New Orleans, the city of Gretna boasts a quaint, small-town environment within its 4.5 square miles that includes a cultural district and two nationally-recognized historic districts. More than one hundred years since its incorporation in 1913, the city continues to emulate a streetscape of small-town America from long ago, while simultaneously embracing the future with its first female mayor, Belinda C. Constant. Experience Gretna's charm and rich history as you stroll through its landmarks and enjoy the good food, friendly faces, and exciting seasonal activities.  You will find Gretna a delight for all ages.

448. Part 2 of our interview with Bob Mann. Bob has a new memoir, Backrooms and Bayous: My Life in Louisiana Politics. State history, behind-the-scenes stories, funny anecdotes, and life lessons come together to form Robert Mann's indelible memoir about his life and career alongside some of the most powerful lawmakers in the South. Offering an in-depth, personal perspective of working in government, Mann shares the lives of major politicians and how they affected his own beliefs, eventually shifting his ideological views. Mann has known every Louisiana governor--aside from Uncle Earl--since 1944. He has interviewed past presidents, senators, and aides as a journalist and served as press secretary to two of the most influential Louisiana legislators. He acted as press secretary to the 1990 US Senate reelection campaign of J. Bennett Johnston when he defeated former Klan leader David Duke. He helped elect Mary Landrieu to the US Senate, and his engaging stories range from Russell Long's struggle with his father's past to how Mann lost John Breaux's suitcase. Through it all, Mann writes with humor and empathy, casting politics and politicians in a refreshing, human light. This week in Louisiana history. December 18, 1948.
