1: The Conch and the Keys

Welcome to Florida Keys Traveler! In this documentary series, recorded throughout the Florida Keys, host Elizabeth Harryman Lasley and producer Jason Paton dive into the history, natural wonders, and attractions that have made the Keys one of the most iconic destinations worldwide.  

Each episode, join us as we explore a new facet of the islands. We’ll take you diving, sport-fishing, and dining. We’ll explore the Keys’ literary heritage and its colorful history, which is full of treasures – literally! We’ll learn about coral restoration initiatives that began here and artistic works that reflect the islands’ beauty. We’ll learn how this island chain evolved to become one of the world’s most welcoming places. And we’ll introduce you to some of the most intriguing people – and animals – you’ll ever meet.  

In this episode, celebrating 200 years since the Keys’ official establishment in 1823, we speak with Clinton Curry, whose family migrated here from the Bahamas in the 1800s. We also sit down with Craig Cates, the mayor of Monroe County – which encompasses the Keys – to hear what makes these islands so special. And you’ll hear classical music played with an instrument you’d never have imagined. Join us as we begin this journey down the Florida Keys – and through 200 years of history.
