We break format this month to bring you a very special interview. As you know, hurricane Katrina has devastated the Gulf Coast of the United States. We felt it only fitting to pay tribute to those affected by bringing you an interview with Michael Barnett, better known to the world as interdictor.
Michael’s gained recognition after a number of prominent sites posted links to his blog. His point of of view was like no other seen in the media; honest, immediate, and unabashed. Blogging from within NOLA itself, Michael was often privy to information before the news networks. His live video stream of the central business district became mandatory watching for those curious to catch a glimpse of what was really going on.
We are ever grateful to Michael for taking the time to talk to us. We asked him about life in NOLA during and after the storm, as well as a few questions that no one else seems to be asking (for example, when the sewage isn’t working, where do you go to the bathroom?). Yes, this podcast is rather long (1 hour and 12 minutes), but I feel it’s well worth it.
Next month we will return to our regular format and will present our interview with Dr. Bill Youngs, a history professor at Eastern Washington University.
