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.

If you’ve ever had folks come visit you in New Orleans from out of town, they’ve probably said, “If I lived here I’d put on a hundred pounds.”
They’re not the folks who come here to visit ProTac Fitness. Those folks say, “If I lived here I could benchpress another hundred pounds.”
Protac Fitness is a New Orleans business that trains people to get in shape for the US military and law enforcement. It’s founder and CEO, Canaan Heard, joins Peter on this edition of Out to Lunch.
Beth Winkler is also in the physical fitness business. But rather than get you into peak fitness and fighting condition, Beth’s happy if she can just get you to walk around without pain. Beth is co-owner of a local chain of physical therapy clinics called Magnolia Physical Therapy.
This Out to Lunch is all about how to kick ass, and what to do after your ass gets kicked.
