This week on the podcast:
- NOPD and the mayor’s office tout police reforms under the federal consent decree. But those efforts won’t stop calls to defund the police.
- Several NOLA charter schools mark Juneteenth as a paid holiday. What about the rest of them?
- Also, Ashlin Parker from Trumpet Mafia reacts to the city’s push to offer some live entertainment amid the pandemic.
- And award-winning journalist Soledad O’Brien talks about COVID-19, the Trump Administration… and bad news writing.
Behind The Lens is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play and Stitcher. 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.
