This week on Behind the Lens, teachers and staff at New Orleans public schools begin getting vaccinated against the coronavirus. 

Top employees from Entergy New Orleans tried to explain to the New Orleans City Council why the company cut three times as much electricity as it needed to during last week’s deep freeze. 

And several prisoners at the Louisiana State Penitentiary at Angola went on hunger strike to protest their treatment.

Our guests this week are education reporter Marta Jewson, government and cultural economy reporter Michael Isaac Stein, criminal justice reporter Nick Chrastil and The Lens editor Charles Maldonado.

Behind The Lens is available on Apple PodcastsSpotifyGoogle 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.
