Street Economy: Poets For Hire

Apr 28, 2016

In New Orleans, culture often transforms into economic transactions that happen on the street. In this episode of Street Economy – a series that documents what it's like to making a living on the streets of New Orleans - street poet Shannon takes us into the lives of the poets who create and exchange their work for what people are willing to pay for it. 

Street Economy is a collaboration between radio producer Sarah Holtz and writer Kelley Crawford. More episodes are available on PRX or Nolavie.
