Often, truth isn’t handed down from public officials but comes from listening to other voices. Once a week, you can hear a wide variety of views from people who shape our corner of the world in New York’s Capital Region. The Altamont Enterprise is the weekly newspaper of record for Albany County, New York.We’ve talked with a Buddhist who provided therapy for Gilda Radner and then helped set up Gilda’s Club after she died; with a Muslim woman who is trying to educate people about her religion as she feels increased hatred; with an African-American man who, as a teenager, helped ferry people north from a town in Mississippi haunted by lynchings.

CHEERS MS. HALE-SPENCER!I’ve just now—on a whim—stumbled upon this Podcast, and I’m using this review space to pen a heartfelt “thank you”. The Podcasts consist of summaries of the latest Editions of our vital hometown paper of record, and offers a succinct (and soothing!) summary roll-up of the goings on in Albany County. Narrated by the Editor-in-Chief, it’s a great resource for those who haven’t the time to read the paper cover to cover, or skim the articles online. I tuned in while gazing down on the sands of Southwest Asia from 1,500 feet while traveling by Blackhawk far away from home.The Podcast also is a newsmaker in its own right, since the one I just listened to features interviews (Ms. Hale-Spencer in the audio journalist’s seat, is to speak). I commend the Altamont Enterprise for exploring this new medium, and hope it expands its forays into the new media landscape even further!BRAVO!
