This new media newsthing, the Greylock Glass, was born in January 2015 as an alternative news outlet to serve unmet journalism needs in the region. Since then, people have downloaded about 200,000 hours worth of our podcasts covering arts, business, politics, community, food, and more. We also produce written articles, videos, and livestreams to provide as much info about issues and events in “Greylock Nation” as we can.

Our Values

We believe that stories from all quarters deserve to be told — not just those of the movers and shakers, the power brokers, the people who were born with an all-access pass in their hands. For this reason, primarily, the Greylock Glass was named. We reflect our community. And just as a looking glass doesn’t doesn’t favor one object it displays at the expense of another, neither do we seek to obscure any event, issue, neighborhood, or topic in our editorial efforts.

We do not have a focus on hard news at the moment. That kind of coverage requires resources beyond our means. We do, however, tell in-depth stories in ways that, we hope, provide a richness of understanding that is available via few other news outlets.

Our Revenue

While we are perennially on the hunt for sponsors, we are supported, more and more all the time, by members who appreciate the independence that their contributions help to nurture. People are also welcome to contribute any amount they like from $1 and up on a one time basis. We greatly appreciate your generosity in the form of US Dollars or cryptocurrency

Greylock Glass Staff

This is as good a place as any to mention that we’re looking to add to our staff. Interested? Contact us for details.

Jason Velázquez, editor

Jason Velázquez has worked in journalism and publishing for the better part of 20 years now.  In addition to writing shows and articles, he edits articles and audio, handles website maintenance and administration, runs marketing and sales, and is the ambassador for Greylock Nation. The desire to bring some buccaneers on board to help man the sails should be pretty obvious…

A Worker-Owned News Coop

This goal is one we have been working towards for a couple years now. Given the slow growth of any new journalistic enterprise, we are pressing onward with the plan, but do not yet have a date we can announce regarding the launch of this development. Stay tuned!

The Shows

The Top Left Corner

Our general news show is concerned with Massachusetts’ northwestern-most corner, with occasional forays into southern Vermont and New York’s Hudson Valley.

The Cornbread Cafe

Our American Roots music show brings you some of the greatest new and Indie Americana tunes, news, and interviews from around the country and around the world.

Will Call

This weekly exploration into the Berkshires arts world offers behind-the-scenes insights with news, exclusive interviews, and analysis of the ever-fluid state of our cultural organizations.

INDIEcent Exposure

This is the show with raw, youthful energy that celebrates the unfiltered creativity found in the area’s wealth of Indie music, theatre, film, and other arts. Sometimes rated PG-13.

Plenty

On our weekly “agriculinary” show, we explore everything related to our daily repast, from the exploding farm-to-table scene, to getting the most out of our own kitchen efforts. Because our diet is global, our scope may be as narrow as your own kitchen garden or as broad as climate change.

Listeners can access shows directly from the website, subscribe via iTunes, or download using a mobile or desktop podcast player app.
