  • Patrick Madden and Stephanie Grace hosted this Friday’s episode of Louisiana Considered.
  • WWNO/WRKF investigative reporter Rich Webster discusses his investigation of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office. His reporting, in partnership with ProPublica and The Times-Picayune | The New Orleans Advocate, uncovered a systemic lack of accountability and transparency when it comes to use of force by officers and a perception that residents from Black and minority communities are treated differently by police.
  • Former state legislator JP Morrell joins us to discuss his campaign to run for a leadership position on the New Orleans City Council.
Patrick is the Regional News Director for the news collaboration between WRKF Baton Rouge and WWNO New Orleans.
