I love the Hudson Valley, NY. Always have, always will. It is where I come from, and I am deeply connected to it.
The Hudson Valley, like the rest the country and the world, is already experiencing the effects of climate change. Read about the experiences of Hudson Valley farmers in The River.
For more on the Hudson Valley, listen to our conversation on end talk with fellow Hudson Valley native and writer Rob Rubsam, covering the region’s connection to NYC, the role of gentrification here especially during COVID, and more.
Juicy new issue of end talk available now!
In this issue, we discuss the material—with a regular round-up of updates on climate breakdown—and the immaterial—through the work of authors Daniel Pinchbeck, who recently came onto the podcast, and Mitch Horowitz, as well as a Trillbilly Worker’s Party podcast recommendation, a brief reflection on five years without the inimitable David Bowie, and a delve into the mind-bending Twilight Zone. Check it out! The boundaries of reality and consciousness are not what they seem!

“More than energy conservation and new technologies, there needs to be a radical shift in our worldview, from unchecked consumption of resources to Earth Stewardship. This requires a massive cut in carbon emission, a relocalisation of our food supply and economy, and most critically of all, an engagement and mobilisation of the whole population in the realities of living in an interdependent planetary system with finite resources.”
