Hey, Greylock Nation —

Welcome to this week’s episode of the Top Left Corner! 

If you’re here for the first time, the Top Left Corner is a locally focused weekly live internet radio show and podcast based in Williamstown, Mass. 

We do our best to wade through the spin and biases and cowardice and bring back the important stuff that most of us really care about. Every week, we’re going to tell you what we think about local current events and the national stories that directly affect the people of Williamston and Berkshire County. We also interview amazing guests.

You can listen live–and participate live–at the link below. You’ll find a chat box you can use to comment live. We do our best to read everyone’s comments on the air:
