Zimple St, misspelled

About This Episode

Today’s episode is a solo show. It’s the 2nd of two parts where I”ll use the ABCs as a roadmap for enjoying New Orleans.

I’m recording this in October 2020, still in the midst of COVID.

Lots of you ask in the Facebook group about things to do in New Orleans right now, and how to experience the city from afar.

The obvious answer to the latter is this podcast as well as our Facebook group and Instagram page. But beyond that, I came up with this idea of challenging myself to think 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.
