In this podcast created by Storycorps for the New Orleans Tricentennial, Stanford Rosenthal and his mother talk about the icons of New Orleans culture as well as the investigative project––Levees.org––and Stanford’s critical role in co-founding it.
Storycorps is an independently funded nonprofit organization whose mission is to “preserve and share humanity’s stories in order to build connections between people and create a more just and compassionate world.”
The podcast with Stanford and Sandy Rosenthal came about as a collaboration between Greater New Orleans, Inc., the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation and Storycorps in honor of the Tricentennial. The podcast was recorded in January of 2018.
The below is from Storycorps’ mission statement on its website:
The goal was to record, preserve, and share the many stories that make up the fabric of the vibrant city of New Orleans. The stories from the Tricentennial project have formed a collective portrait of the resilient people, the creative spirit, the rich culinary and cultural history, and the business innovation that make New Orleans an inimitable city.
