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:

–Jay and Steve

The Issues We’re Talking About This Week:

Andrew Art is an attorney, businessman, and member of the Diversity, Inclusion, and Racial Equity committee that formed last year after a police sergeant leveled allegations of racism and discrimination against the Williamstown Police Department.

Andrew will join us to talk about his work on the DIRE committee, the recent elections in Williamstown, and whatever else is on his mind!
