WEDNESDAY: Author and Flood Protection Advocate John Barry, Joe Traigle

Jim talks with John Barry, author of the book "Rising Tide", about the great 1927 Mississippi River Flood. John was recently dismissed from his position on a levee board that filed suit against the oil & gas industry. Now he's formed his own group to support litigation against energy companies for the damage they've done along Louisiana's coast.

Joe Traigle joins Jim to talk about the new ordinance in Shreveport "Be Fair Shreveport" that protects against discrimination based on sexual orientation.

Every weekday Jim engages listeners with compelling discussions ranging from presidential and gubernatorial campaigns to LSU football and the aftermath of disasters like Hurricane Isaac.
