Green beans and carrots: Good individually, spectacular baked together

A ridiculously small space can yield massive taste and nutrition. Green beans picked right off the vine in your yard have a taste you'll remember — especially when you combine them with their BBF, the humble carrot, and some spices.

This is not your average summer theatre “Best Bets” segment, I promise you. Larry Murray, founder and editor of Berkshire on Stage (among many other cultural connections) and Gail Burns, author of “Gail Sez” (ditto), start out with their forecasts for how the wind will blow across the boards in the Berkshires this season. Then, the conversation bends toward some of the big, really big, issues, affecting the vitality of the arts both at home and across the country. Keep Reading

I love this episode. Not only do we have two fantastic guests AND massively powerful indie music mojo, but this is the episode where I figure out some critical truths about how to engineer the show so that we have time for everything we want to hear. Probably, this means that indie music is going to get it’s own show next week. For now, enjoy an hour and a half or so of exceptional Internet audio goodness. As always, a great time co-hosted by Tela Zasloff, founder and editor of the Greylock Independent.

A tremendous head and chest cold struck this week, so I offer my apologies for the obvious snuffliness. A very busy Tammy Daniels, managing editor of iBerkshires took time out from coverage of the Clarksburg State Forest fire to co-host another segment of the audio “iBeat.” Kelly Bevan McIlquham of Berkshire Family Focus, is back from vacation, though she may have left some of her brain in Fla… We speak with Jonah Sykes of the Berkshire United Way about the free screening of “Let’s Talk about Sex” that helps focus attention on the issue of the pregnancy rates among teens in the Berkshires. And of course, there is music…

Both women, Jessica Sweeney of the Common Folk Artists Collective, and Jennifer Crowell, of the Berkshire Cultural Resource Center, can put their fingers on how the arts will fuel various types of regional growth for years to come. We are treated to top-shelf tunes this week, thanks to Winterpills, The Sun Parade, and Wishbone Zoë.
