On this month's edition of "Specific Objects: Talks on Art in the Catskills," host Miriam Atkin speaks with Amanda Turner Pohan (known as Pohan), a Lanesville-based interdisciplinary artist. The discussion revolves around Pohan's outdoor sculpture titled between Scylla and Charybdis, which was created in collaboration with the United States Geological Survey and is currently installed at the RIT campus. The piece was supported by a NYSCA Media Arts Assistance Fund grant and Wave Farm Radio. We also discuss her recent video work, Alexa Echoes, which screened at the 36th edition of Images Festival in Toronto.

You can experience between Scylla and Charybdis at https://betweenscyllaandcharybdis.pohanamandaturner.com/ and also at wavefarm.org/listen. You can view Alexa Echoes at https://empac.rpi.edu/events/2021/alexa-echoes.

"All Together Now!" features local news, interviews with community leaders and personalities, reports on cultural issues, a rundown of public meetings and local and regional events, with weather updates, and more about and for the community, made mostly through volunteers in the community through WGXC. The show is a place for community conversations about issues, with music, and more. Saturday the emphasis is more on radio art, radio news, and art on the radio. Unlike shows by individual programmers on the station, "All Together Now!" is considered partially station-run. The show begins each day with local headlines, weather, and previews of community events.

Segments featured on the show include "Better Weather" produced by the Catskill Makers Syndicate, "Las Brujas Bilingues" produced by Arielle and Gloria, "Food Segment" produced by Tepper B.T., "The Ag Report" produced by Brendan Donegan, and "Nature Calls: Conversations from the Hudson Valley," hosted by Jean Thomas and Tim Kennelty, and produced by the Master Gardeners of the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Greene and Columbia counties with science-based information about gardening and all things nature in New York's Hudson Valley.

Tune in for previews of upcoming interesting events in the Hudson Valley with "The Month Ahead with Chosen Family Zine" from Mike Amari, an event organizer for Opus 40, Basilica, and others; and Liam Singer; the owner of The Avalon Lounge in Catskill, NY and a member of Wave Farm's Board of Directors. And for previews of agriculture-related events, tune in for "The Month Ahead at Cornell Cooperative Extension with Deven Connolly."

Also featured are movie updates from Jenny Ghetti and Amanda Lees from their show "Dim The Lights" as well as interviews by hosts of the "WGXC Morning Show," the "WGXC Afternoon Show," Justin Maiman from his "Ginger Radio Hour," and other WGXC produced shows.

Philip Grant and Tom Roe bring you the weekly "WGXC Congressional Report," with reports about the representatives and candidates of New York's 18th, 19th, 20th, and 21st Congressional Districts on Mondays, and Tom Roe also cuts up local and national news with songs and sounds for the show.

Some reports come from our partner station, WOOC-LP in Troy, out of The Sanctuary for Independent Media. Also tune in for national headlines from the Public News Service on WGXC. Sometimes national, state, or local press conferences, meetings, or events are also broadcast live here.

WGXC is always looking for contributors who have an interesting idea for a recurring segment on either the "WGXC Morning Show" or the "WGXC Afternoon Show." Email your idea to info@wgxc.org.
