Frank Parker by Ashley Hall.

This summer, Ashley Hall, SFA member and freelance writer, embarked on a journey to collect stories relating to the effects of the Gulf oil spill. She traveled the coast from Biloxi, MS, to Apalachicola, FL, as a field correspondent for Gravy, the SFA foodletter, revisiting oral history subjects whenever possible---subjects like seventh-generation shrimper Frank Parker, whose 2008 interview we featured on our inaugural edition of OKRACAST.

Ashley's June 22 interview with Frank Parker is our latest edition of OKRACAST. In this follow-up interview, Frank talks about how the Gulf oil spill has affected his family and his way of life. Go here to access the interview through iTunes and subscribe to OKRACAST.

We will be featuring all of Ashley’s Gulf Coast interviews on OKRACAST, so check back each week for new installments.
