013 ALWAYS KEEP THE FIRE GOING SOMEWHERE

A story of compassion and saintlike devotion in the streets of New Orleans.

B.B. St. Roman is the only staff member for the New Orleans Police Department Homeless Assistant Unit. Before helping the homeless, she traveled the world, recording sound for documentaries involving shamans, Buddhist monks, and Mother Teresa. And at one point, she became the tour manager for Dr. John, Louisiana musician and legend.

Now, she works full-time with the homeless. She tells her stories of Hurricane Katrina, shelter issues in the city, as well as planning and dreaming of ways to help those living in the streets.

ABOUT

Everything is Stories

EVERYTHING IS STORIES

An ongoing audio survey of individuals who have experienced transcendence and/or power of the will. No story will be considered too troubled, no atmosphere too strange.

Needed: tales from the underground, the underdog, the outlaw, and the outcast. Genuine characters of all kinds welcome.

Everything is Stories explores unconventional narratives of the past and present to preserve the eccentric, the authentic, and the personal.

Produced by Garrett Crowe, Mike Martinez, and Tyler Wray.
