OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. Each week Peter invites guests from the New Orleans business renaissance to join him. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Inc magazine have all named New Orleans the best city in the USA to be an entrepreneur. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the new New Orleans entrepreneurial movement. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

When was the last time you bought a car? After you bought it, if it was new, did you think you could have gotten a better deal? If it was used, did you notice something a few days later that you’d wished you’d seen before you bought it?
Those days of car buyer remorse are over, thanks to a New Orleans startup business called ReDrive.
Co-founder of ReDrive, Max Burwick, joins Peter Ricchiuti on this edition of Out to Lunch.
If you’d rather not drive, and prefer to be driven, Peter's other lunch guest can help you out. He’s not an Uber driver. He’s the owner of Nicoll’s Limousine and Shuttle, Mike Nicoll. If you’ve seen a giant stretch Hummer on the road, or a beautiful Rolls Royce with a bride in the back, or prom kids in any number of shiny black limos, you’ve seen Mike’s fleet at work.
Peter and guests are talking about a revolutionary new way to buy or sell a car, and a traditional, luxurious way to ride around in cars, on Out to Lunch at Commander's Palace.
