We have material from the many ethnic groups, languages (English, French, Spanish, and Creole so far), and regions of our state. We also include the widest varitey of genres: poetry, fiction, history, essay, blog post, cook book, travelogue etc. Our podcast includes interviews with historians about important events in our past as well as artists about their current works. We even interview political figures like Gov. John Bel Edwards.

- This week in New Orleans history. May 29, 1948. The
Streetcar named Desire ran for the last time. The famous
Streetcar Named Desire, i.e., the Desire Line [which began
operating on October 17, 1920], was a one-way loop which ran
from Canal Street down Bourbon through the Vieux Carré, down
Dauphine to Desire Street, then out its namesake street to
Tonti, down to France Street, and back in to Royal, finally
returning through the Vieux Carré to Canal. In the
process, it passed Elysian Fields Blvd., the site of most of
the action in the famous Tennessee Williams play and movie.
