New Orleans By The Letters, Part 1- Episode 120

About This Episode

Today’s episode is a solo show. It’s the first of two parts where I”ll use the ABCs as a roadmap for enjoying New Orleans.

You’ll hear interesting stories, history and facts about New Orleans through the lens of the alphabet.

I thought this would be a fun challenge for me and a different way of generating ideas about things to do and New Orleans history for you.

New Orleans is so much more than the Bourbon Street scenes you may have seen–– it’s a 300-year-old city made up of vibrant neighborhoods, diverse populations, and traditions layered upon each other.
