About the podcast

Some call it Hurricane Katrina. Some call it the Federal Flood. Others call it the day the levees broke. On August 29, 2005, the city of New Orleans was submerged. That story of hubris, incompetence, and nature's wrath is now etched into the national consciousness. But the people who lived through the flood and its aftermath have a different story to tell. A story of rumors, betrayal, and one of the most misunderstood events in American history. Launching March 12. Hosted by Vann R. Newkirk II.

Interesting podcast about the aftermath of hurricane Katrina which completely devastated New Orleans due to flooding. The show mainly deals with the lack of help New Orleans received and how the chaos led to civilians being shot by police because of the misunderstandings and miscommunications. Some of episodes are really interesting and others are kind of boring. But overall I learned how media can completely misrepresent a situation leading to loss of innocent lifes 😢
