From movie studio to flood shelter

red bayou showThis week, Scott and I talk with Executive Director of Celtic Studios, Patrick Mulhearn. Patrick tells the story from start to finish of how the movie studios he runs turned into an evacuation shelter for upwards of 4000 people seeking refuge from the flood. He talks about the response by the Governor, by Lieutenant General Russel Honore, and most importantly, by the people of Baton Rouge. He talks about the challenges they faced along the way, how they overcame them, and basically, how a bunch of motivated, caring people can make something amazing happen. I even asked Patrick if he thinks the story would make for a good movie… Of course it would!

After the interview, Scott and I break down who they feel were the winners and losers of the last few weeks. Who stepped up and rose to the occasion and who left a lot to be desired.
