If you live in New Orleans, you’re hardly going to be surprised to hear that on this edition of Out to Lunch we’re talking about food and music. Even if you don’t live in New Orleans, and you’ve never been here, you probably still know us for our reputation for food and music. Interestingly, even though we often talk about food and music in the sam…
 
In New Orleans, we’re proud of our local businesses and we try and support them as much as we can. If you own a local business, you have to compete for customers against every online business in the world, and against nationwide businesses who have a brick and mortar presence here. And it’s not enough just to compete on price. You’re also competing…
 
We like to divide things into categories. We talk about short people and tall people. Black and white. Gay and straight. In business, we talk about big and small. But this kind of categorization isn’t quite as useful as it might be for other hard and fast demographic descriptions. For example, if you’re a short adult, you’re never going to be tall.…
 
The United States Declaration of Independence declares that our inalienable rights include life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. There’s a school of thought that suggests the word “pursuit” wasn’t intended to be defined as chasing. But, rather, as being. In the same way that stamp collecting is a pursuit, “the pursuit of happiness,” accordin…
 
On this week’s edition of Le Show Harry looks back at 20 years of America’s Longest War. We’ll hear from Project Afghanway, journalists in Afghanistan, George W. Bush’s phone calls, Mel Gibson’s call log, plus regular segments like The Apologies of the Week, News of the Atom, News of the Olympic Movement, News of the Godly and more.…
 
If somebody was to ask you, “What do you know about brain chemistry?” you’d probably answer “Not much,” or even “Nothing.” well, it turns out you’d be wrong. When you decide you need a cup of tea, or a glass of wine, and you prefer one kind of tea over another, or you avoid a certain type of wine because it gives you a headache, what you’re actuall…
 
Although this is a show about business in New Orleans, once in a while we have to admit there’s some pretty interesting things going on an hour or so west of us, in Baton Rouge. There are two impressive institutions in Baton Rouge – not including the legislature. One is the Pennington Biomedical Research Center. It has over 450 employees. They work…
 
Of course I was wearing dark clothing when I bit into that first beignet at the new home of Morning Call Coffee Stand. And of course some of the powdered sugar I just heaped on its golden shell drifting down to decorate my shirt. Just as surely as a strawberry sno-ball paints your palate red, eating a beignet means wearing some of it. Here’s anothe…
 
When you pull up at a red light, and you’re the only car on the road, instead of sitting there waiting, aggravated, do you ever wonder, “Why doesn’t someone invent smart traffic lights that react to real-time traffic conditions?” If that thought has never crossed your mind, you’re like most people. Most of us accept and deal with the world around u…
 
Here’s a real-world business problem for you: Employers in New Orleans say they can’t find enough people with skills in technology. Colleges in New Orleans say they don’t offer more classes in technology because there aren’t enough kids coming out of high school with an education in what they call STEM – science, technology, engineering, and math. …
 
One of the longest-running foreign language festivals in the country is gearing up for its 24th celebration as the New Orleans Film Society presents the 2021 New Orleans French Film Festival. The event will showcase contemporary and classic French language films. New Orleans Film Society artistic director Clint Bowie joins us by phone with a sneak …
 
On Out to Lunch we invite people to have lunch and talk about their business. Our general rule of thumb is, we don’t invite them to come back a second time, unless something has materially changed in their business. Well, the Covid-19 pandemic has certainly expanded our list of potential return guests on Out to Lunch. In the past 12 months almost e…
 
Luke Fleming founding artistic director and violist with the Manhattan Chamber Players is bringing members of the ensemble to New Orleans.
