This week on the podcast:

  • More than a week after the Crescent City Connection incident, New Orleans’ police chief faces tough questions at City Council. We’ll hear from that special meeting. 
  • We’ll also examine the prospects for police reform with two law enforcement experts: Ursula Price and Rafael Goyeneche.
  • Also, a new survey of New Orleans students supports the idea that the educational experience is split badly along racial lines. We’ll explore it in detail. 
  • And, an update from a former member of the Krewe of Nyx who has made the painful decision to leave, after all. 

Behind The Lens is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play and Stitcher as well as our partners’ website, NewOrleansLocal.com. And we broadcast the show on community radio stations 102.3 FM WHIV LP in Mid-City and 90.3 FM WAMF-LP in the Marigny.
