The governor, and GZA, and our first show!

Monte and GZA

Our first episode! We talked with Massachusetts Gov. Healey, The GZA, and YOU!

Our very first episode, where in addition to over-excited introductions of ourselves, we chat with Governor Maura Healeyabout where Western Massachusetts fits in her overall plans, and GZA about why chess is important to his engagement with his fans.

We also share some of your thoughts on the ups and downs of life here in the four counties of western Massachusetts.
