Premiering on Letters Read New Year’s Eve at 6:00 pm CDT. The final production for 2021, Doing Business in New Orleans. A prelude to the upcoming, 2022 regular programming event about New Orleans’ beloved international businessman Clay Shaw, international trade, CIA, and the JFK assassination conspiracy.
A link to the New Year’s podcast is HERE. You can listen to previous Letters Read recordings and podcasts HERE.
The December 31st podcast is one of our incubator, experimental-style readings. It weaves comparisons between Shaw and another, international-export-fella, Nate Feldman. Who spoke about his trade during a 2007 entrepreneurship panel discussion at Loyola University New Orleans. The other panel members speaking were environmental justice activist Michel Varisco—a Letters Read Executive Advisor—and this project’s Director well before Letters Read began in 2017. A link to that discussion is HERE.
Clay Shaw was the subject of the 1991 Oliver Stone feature film, JFK. Shaw was the only person ever to be brought to trial for conspiracy in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. That conspiracy is also the subject of Stone’s latest documentary.
The audio producer for this event is Steve Chyzyk, Sonic Canvas Studio in New Orleans.
