In this virtual shed, we gather old tales of life in coastal California, with a focus on people whose ancestors settled here to make their living from the land or sea. Each episode is a “family conversation”, with a son interviewing his father or a wife reminiscing with her husband. Guided, recorded, edited and produced by a professional journalist, this project works to maximize kitchen-table-style banter and emotion so that it can be appreciated by a wide and diverse audience.
