Hello Capital Region! This is the Hudson Mohawk Magazine on WOOC-LP 105.3 FM Troy, WOOS-LP 98.9 FM Schenectady, WOOA-LP 106.9 FM Albany, and WCAA-LP 107.3 FM Albany, broadcasting from The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY.

Today, soil and water tests near the Norlite facility in Cohoes reveal contamination of AFFF compounds associated with toxic fire-fighting foam. We speak with Dr. David Bond of Bennington College.

Then, Cohoes Mayor Bill Keeler and other public officials held a press conference to discuss the AFFF findings.

And later on, home-birth requests have skyrocketed in the Capital Region. HMM’s Melissa Bromley interviews midwife Michelle Doyle.

After that, we speak with Cheryl Kennedy of the Center of Gravity’s response to face mask shortages during the COVID-19 pandemic

Finally, HMM’s Willie Terry speaks with Art Fleischner about this year’s May Day protests.
