This week, the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from one of America’s best museums—The National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana. We’ll discuss the repercussions of the laptop ban (and the lifting of that ban) and the pushback the Department of Homeland Security is facing from the European Union and airlines themselves. Stephen Watson, Executive Vice President and COO of The National WWII Museum, talks about the museum’s innovative approach to telling the thousands of World War II stories. Award-winning Chef John Besh discusses supporting local communities in post-Katrina New Orleans. Doug MacCash, Entertainment Editor at The Times-Picayune, discusses the vast art scene and staggering number of galleries in New Orleans. He also talks about post-Katrina New Orleans and the city’s future—including Bourbon Street and his favorite local jazz clubs. Plus, the show wouldn’t be complete without Burton Benrud, President of Café du Monde, who talks about the cafe’s history and Peter’s addiction to beignets. There’s all of this and more as the Peter Greenberg Worldwide Radio Show broadcasts from the National World War II Museum in New Orleans, Louisiana.
