This week on Behind The Lens: The governor fact checks conspiracy theorists as the COVID-19 pandemic widens in Louisiana. The mayor of New Orleans announces new bar restrictions. Public schools won’t open to students for in-class learning right away, despite the White House push to do so. And the long-time district attorney of Orleans Parish announces his retirement. Also, we look at sky-high rental prices in New Orleans. And Lens contributor Amy Stelly talks about the old Municipal Auditorium: Is it the right place to move City Hall, or better a return to its neighborhood roots?

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.
