(Newser) – The man made infamous in the wake of Katrina by President Bush's "heckuva job" compliment has landed himself a full-time gig on the radio dishing about DC politics. Former FEMA director Michael Brown will host a weeknight show on Denver's most popular talk station, KOA, reports Denver Westword. He says his goal is to explain "how things really work in Washington, behind the scenes."

Brown is just fine talking about his Katrina experience, about which he feels he's been unfairly ridiculed. "It's no different than it is when I walk into a restaurant or anywhere else. There are always a percentage of people with preconceived notions, good or bad, and I feel like the radio audience is the same way. The subject comes up occasionally, and people will ask me questions. But people can ask me anything and I'll tell them about it. When it comes to that experience, I have nothing to hide."
