As part of an ongoing series, SouthernFoodways has released a large series of oral histories documenting the lives of food producers in the American South. The most recent series focuses on the seafood culture of Florida's Apalachicola Bay, telling the stories of bait-shop owners, commercial fisherman, net-makers, and of course, the chefs and restaurateurs who cooked up local cuisine.

In this oral history, 81-year-old James McNeill, who owns the Indian Pass Raw Bar, talks about turning a turpentine-factory commissary into a bustling oyster restaurant that's still in operation today. Go, listen:
