Angela Hill: Some Days You Just Live Right?

Some days you just live right.  On today’s show:  the FBI Special Agent In Charge…the actor…and the food critic.  I talked to Mike Anderson on the day our new U.S. Attorney Kenneth Allen Polite, Jr takes center stage…Bryan Batt as the world celebrates his latest movie—“12 Years A Slave”… and Tom Fitzmorris as the restaurant boom in New Orleans gets national attention.  3 fascinating men; 3 fascinating hours. 
Mike Anderson is head of the local office of the FBI.  His professional life has been fascinating. Both a lawyer and a CPA, he literally wrote the FBI’s public corruption field guide.  Years before he was named Special Agent In Charge here, he was aware of New Orleans history of public corruption, having worked  the investigation in the “operation wrinkled robe” case and  having supervised the  investigation of Congressman William Jefferson.  And now Mike Anderson is running an office in New Orleans that always seems to have its hands full.

The next hour I get to talk to one of the most talented actors New Orleans ever hatched.
Bryan Batt went from being a child star at le Petit Theater to a Broadway star on the great white way.  From Broadway…it was hello Hollywood…where he captured a coveted roll on the hit TV series “Mad Men.”  And in between those great experiences the big screen called…most recently in the critically acclaimed movie “12 Years A Slave.”  And, somewhere in that fast, glamorous life Bryan and his partner opened a very successful business on Magazine Street.  So the question is...when did he find time to write two books…one a tribute to his much beloved mother.  Singer, dancer, actor, businessman, author…Bryan Batt is the whole package.

And, in my final hour a man who has spent every week for the last 41 years writing about food.  If that isn’t enough, he has spent the last 25 years talking about food on radio.  Six days a week. 
I can’t wait to find out what Tom Fitzmorris does on his day off…cook?  Maybe.  Or maybe that’s when he writes the 16 restaurant guides, 4 cookbooks and memoir he‘s authored.  How did Tom Fitzmorris become such a food authority?  Maybe it started the day he was born…Mardi Gras.
So much to talk about, so little time…
Join me for 3 fascinating hours…with 3 fascinating men…won’t you…

Angela, Do you think you could talk some more serious issues?

I prefer Angela to what was on before.

I love Angela's show. She's reasonable and talks about practical things and issues of concern to people's life beyond politics. I have zero interest in the show turning into another bickering festival about a particular politician or ideology. There's plenty of that already.
