This week on Behind the Lens, the Buttermilk Drop scrambled to pay its December bills, after a hacker switched banking information linked to the Buttermilk Drop’s Uber Eats account and they feared $10,000 in lost revenue.

The Orleans Parish School Board voted to close the Living School, a small project-based high school in New Orleans East, over the cries of students and staff at an emotional December board meeting, supporting the superintendent’s recommendation.

Our guests this week are Lens reporters La’Shance Perry, Marta Jewson and managing editor Katy Reckdahl.
