It's Alive with Brad Leone is back for episode 77 and this time Brad is learning all about oyster reefs. Join Brad in New York Harbor as he learns how oyster shells are put to work after restaurants dispose of them. New York Harbor used to have 220,000 acres of oyster reefs, but it only took 100 years to harvest them all once Europeans arrived. That's where Billion Oyster Project comes in -- recreating New York's lost oyster fields. And Brad's here to help.

Learn more about Billion Oyster Project here:

Join Bon Appétit test kitchen guy, Brad Leone, on a wild, roundabout and marginally scientific adventure exploring fermented foods and more. From cultured butter and kombucha, to kimchi and miso, to beer and tepache, learn how to make fermented and live foods yourself.

Racism seems to be rampant in bon appetit. I love the content, the food and the presentation, but I'm not going to support a channel who employs racists and pays their POC staff significantly cheaper salaries than their white counterparts.

This Billion Oyster Project is awesome, restoring nature via oysters in the NY Harbor❣️ Indeed, BA is blessed to still have Brad. But I still won’t subscribe, nor like, only comment on their videos. Equity and real multicultural diversity. Not this weird overdoing it. And acknowledging what they did wrong and knowing everyone is getting paid equitably. Then I will subscribe and like again. I will not let them forget, BA not CN🤨

Brad is amazing but to say he’s the only one worth watching, is disrespectful to the other talented people of color they have hired since this past summer and now feature heavily.

I think everyone talking about BA being barely alive, I aggre one video got 88k views in like a week, Claire saffitz is doing very well in that regard as I'm she's like top 5 or 6 at BA Imo, I'm more curious what delany will do as he doesn't do cooking videos and generally just eats and gives his opinion. Hope BA doesn't fully die though (that's my take)

As someone who grew up in New York city, but moved out later in life because, I felt I could live a better quality of life elsewhere and for less money. I would love to see the waters around the city come back to life and the next few generations have it where they can see what it once was
