172. Christophe Landry, part 2

172. Part 2 of our interview with Christophe Landry.  Christophe was born in New Iberia, Louisiana, the heart of Latin Louisiana. Due to his region's multilingual background and secondary status, he has worked with state and private agencies for the promotion, protection and expansion of his region's languages (Creole, Spanish and French). After working as Cabin Crew for 7 years on international, long-haul flights, Christophe is a well-seasoned traveler with insight on culture, adapting, flying (though he cannot offer flight discounts), history, and more.
  1. This week in Louisiana history. September 3, 1859. A "mini civil war" takes place between Calcasieu vigilante and others near Rayne in what was known as the Battle of Queue de Toture.
  2. This week in New Orleans history. September 3, 1910.  Catherine Conn was born in New Orleans.  As an adult, she changed her name to Kitty Carlisle and became an actress who costarred with Bing Crosby.  In later years she was best known for being a panelist on Password, What's My Line?, and Match Game.
