It's business, New Orleans style.
You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

Word – Out to Lunch – It’s New Orleans

Wherever you are right now, take a look around. There’s a fair chance that someone near you is staring at their phone. They’re not talking into it, they’re writing on it. People love writing so much they’re even texting while driving at highway speed. You’d have to really be in love with writing to risk your life for “OMG.”

Peter’s guests on this edition of Out to Lunch are very connected with the current business of writing.
