TriPod: New Orleans at 300

A history podcast about New Orleans exploring lost and neglected stories, delving deeper into the familiar, and questioning what we think we know about the city’s history.

Why “TriPod”?

“Tri” for the city’s three centuries, “Pod” for podcast, and “tripod”, a three-legged tool used to steady a capturing device that documents a time and place. TriPod moves beyond the familiar themes of New Orleans history to focus on forgotten, neglected, or surprising pieces of the city’s past, and to enrich understanding of its present and future.
