If you’re into Louisiana’s history, culture, and folklore, you’ll want to checkout our guest today, Kyle Crosby, the founder of Louisiana Dread. If you haven’t seen any of their productions before, they are a history company with a very active following on social media and YouTube, but more importantly, they produce some incredibly information content related to the state of Louisiana and its history.

Today we’ll discuss everything from gumbo to the Axe Man to some of his favorite stories. This conversation is going to be a lot of fun for both locals and outsiders.
