As Haiti captures our attention, many are scrambling to help. Some of us have flown there. Others are staying close to sources who are there. Still others think the mainstream news provide an accurate picture as Hurricane Katrina unfolds. But news is not the final word on real events.

This show’s guest is Alystar McKenneh (filmmaker, writer, and producer of Peace Keepers). Alystar flew to Mississippi and drove into Hurricane Katrina five days later on her motorcycle. She has important stories and insights to share with us about what it’s like to be on emergency ground.

Alystar is launching a one-woman motorcycle ride for a two-month, 10,000-mile adventure called “Road To Sturgis“. Join us as we learn what one person can do to help after one of the worst emergency disasters in US history.

Thank God for people like you. I would hope that FEMA learned a lot from that experience, Tents,MREs. generators,and bulldozers to clear the roads,etc. (Paratroopers!!! thanks)

Unfortunately, it turns out she is a horrible person who doesnt commit to what she says and takes me money from people.

Dear Megan,
I’m sorry about what happened to you. So as not to slander her without some facts being shared, would you explain what happened please? Otherwise it just comes off as an attack on her person and we may have to remove your comment. Please explain.
