310. Jaya McSharma, part 1

310. Part 1 of our interview with Jaya McSharma, MD. "Hi! I’m Dr. Jaya McSharma. I’m an actor and writer currently living in Shreveport, La. I have loved acting and writing as long as I have been able to understand purpose and passion. It’s what sets my soul ablaze. My husband and I formed #McSharma Productions and had our first-ever short film, #BrownBridgetMD, selected as a top 20 finalist of the Louisiana Film Prize in 2018. I also won Best Actress at the festival! Currently we are in pre-production to take our short film and turn it into a TV or streaming series."
  1. This week in Louisiana history. April 28, 1862. Forts Jackson and St. Phillip on the Mississippi river are surrendered to Union troops.
  2. This week in New Orleans history. The Illinois Central Railroad introduced the original City of New Orleans on April 27, 1947 as a daytime companion to the overnight Panama Limited. EMD E7 diesel locomotives pulled new lightweight Pullman Company coaches. The 921-mile route, which the City of New Orleans covered in 15 hours 55 minutes, was the longest daytime schedule in the United States.
