On this edition of All Things New Orleans, we discuss the Orleans Public Defenders' 2nd Annual Second Line for Equal Justice. Then, we'll share another episode of the Listening Post. 

And our very own Jess Clark sits down with New Orleans rapper and singer, Pell. 

This week on All Things New Orleans, the city's public defenders team up for the inaugural Concerts for Indigent Defense. Lindsey Hortenstine and Stephen Saloom talk about the importance of raising awareness to the Sixth Amendment Right to Counsel. 

And we're kicking off New Orleans Entrepreneur Week! Victoria Adams Phipps, Executive Producer of NOEW, shares the schedule of events for this unique festival experience which celebrates the city's entrepreneurial ecosystem. 

When you enter the lobby of the Orleans Public Defender's Office, expect a bit of a wait, because receptionist Chastity Tillman will likely be busy on the phone.

"The jail calls. We get them every second," Tillman says.
