Out To Lunch
Thursdays at 1:00 p.m. and Fridays at 6:30 p.m.

Out To Lunch is a New Orleans business podcast and radio show that finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch. Usually at Commander’s Palace and sometimes at the more casual NOLA Pizza in the NOLA Brewing Taproom.
In his 10th year in the host seat, Ricchiuti’s learned but uniquely NOLA informal perspective has established Out to Lunch as the voice of Crescent City business.

The complete archive of Out to Lunch shows can be found here.
