Hurricane Katrina Revisited With Author B.J. Schneider
In this week’s episode hosts Jamie Davis, the Podmedic, and Sam Bradley got the chance to interview EMS author B.J. Schneider over Skype to find out more about his book, “Welcome to New Orleans: How Many Shots Did You Hear?”
In this return episode, B.J. continues to discuss his experiences in New Orleans. This week he talks specifically about his response with New Orleans EMS to Hurricane Katrina. This is a rare look at Katrina response from the inside. We have had federal and NGO responders on the show before, but we’ve never taken a hard look at the local responders and what they went through during the devastation following that storm. Check out this amazing episode with B.J. and check out his book via the links below.
