This podcast is amazing and really breaks down what went wrong in Hurricane Katrina, and how the governments reaction exacerbated the crisis. It exposes racial tensions that shaped the response - from reports of looting and wide spread rape - that the media and police irresponsibly ran with.

@jhawthorne The Atlantic is all about brand elevation ;) I hope they are going to do more projects because whoever's behind the production of this is πŸ‘ŒπŸ‘ŒπŸ‘Œ
