The Bayou Brief proudly presents this provocative, feature-length conversation with Louisiana’s original Ragin’ Cajun, James Carville. From his home in Uptown New Orleans, Carville discusses what he considers to be the three most critical issues in Louisiana—race, water, and oil (with some discussion about LSU football as lagniappe), alongside host Frederick D. Bell, one of his former LSU students and a recent graduate of Tulane University who just so happened to have attended high school near Carville, Louisiana.
