Katrina: The Debris
As the 10th hurricane season begins since the landfall of Hurricane Katrina and its aftermath, 89.9 WWNO — New Orleans Public Radio is launching a new weekly podcast and radio feature: Katrina: The Debris, stories about what was left behind by the storm and the floods that followed.
Combining archival material with new interviews and long-format feature stories, Katrina: The Debris aims to pick up some of the narrative threads of the storm, and follow them into the present and future.
Each week producers loosely explore a theme: groceries, maps, music, weather, charity, faith, cooking, family. Using archived sound, new interviews, original reporting, dramatic readings, and occasional special guest stars like Wendell Pierce and David Byrne, WWNO picks up pieces of this lingering Katrina debris.
