Comics artist  Josh Neufeld met and talked with survivors of Hurricane Katrina while volunteering with the Red Cross in 2005.  The result of these conversations is the graphic chronicle A.D.: New Orleans After the Deluge, a critically-acclaimed collection of first-person accounts from the Crescent City's various cultures, races, income groups, and neighborhoods.  S.W. Conser spoke with Josh during the 2009 Wordstock Literary Festival.

Special thanks to Emily Young for her invaluable production help on this program.
