In this short interview, staffer Daniel Hinerfeld asks some great questions, and Mr. Shearer makes some great points. Here's an exerpt:
HINERFELD: "So you’ve got a new movie. Can you say what it’s called and what it’s about?"
SHEARER: "It’s called The Big Uneasy.

Chernobyl’s the big leagues. So New Orleanians had known a lot of this stuff because the findings of the investigators were piecemeal coming out in the local press, but the national media had formed their template of the story – big storm, city below sea level...."
The more attention Mr. Shearer's documentary gets, the better for all of us who care about New Orleans.
