Hello Capital Region! This is the Hudson Mohawk Magazine on WOOC-LP 105.3 FM Troy and WOOS-LP 98.9 FM Schenectady, broadcasting from The Sanctuary for Independent Media in Troy, NY. I’m Mathew Lee
And I’m Alexis Goldsmith. Today, we look at the funding relationship between fossil companies, utilities, banks and the police.
Then, we welcome birth doula Shia Overby [Shy – ya] to the show on the topic of supporting Black birthing families.
And later on, the 21st Century 2020 Nature Lab Summer program for middle school students in Troy focuses on nature right outside your front door. We speak with Erin Blanding and Professor Ellie Irons
After that, Environmentalist Reece O’Donnell discusses urban and possibly community-generated flood-preventative technologies that could be used to protect Northeastern cities from the climate crisis.
