Wicked Good Smoke Show #1 the mongrel
Editor’s Note: Wistful or humorous stories of legendary teenage pot consumption notwithstanding, The Wicked Good Smoke Show, promotes responsible cannabis consumption by people of the legally permitted age to smoke out in the jurisdictions in which they reside. Both this show, and the Greylock Glass, encourage listeners to familiarize themselves with all pertinent local, state, and federal laws relating to the use, possession, or distribution of controlled substances.
Thanks for checking out the Wicked Good Smoke Show, the podcast version, here on Radio Free Berkshires. The only thing that’s different from the live show that airs from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. on Thursdays is that I may leave out some of the news segments if they are totally time sensitive, or I may leave out a sponsor announcement if they are only sponsoring our live-stream. But that’s about it.
In this, our inaugural show, we speak first with Dr. Sarah Gardner, chair of the Williamstown Agricultural commission about the place of cannabis agriculture in a small New England town who’s farming character is more aesthetic than actual. We also hear from Nate Girard, co-founder of Bloom Brothers, a Pittsfield, Mass. retail cannabis outlet that values its local roots and commitment to the local community.
Let’s get the show started with our conversation with Sarah Gardner.
Mentioned: The “No Scare Mongering — Just the Facts” website that then proceeds to show you pictures of murdered and mutilated livestock. Oh, and also implant murky images of swarthy members of foreign “drug cartels” taking over Spring Street.
So, Williamstown gets a little bit of reprieve from this contentious issue for the rest of 2020. We’ll obviously keep up with the topic and report as developments occur. Certainly, towns all over the country are also keeping an eye on how things shake out here at the vanguard of legalization.
Now, let’s go to our conversation with Nate Girard of Bloom Brothers, who, for a guy who admits he’s not a major pothead, knows a phenomenal amount about the wares his family offers in their store.
And that’s our show for this week. Look for links in the show notes to sites and information we’ve mentioned on the show. In the meantime, I’ll be scouting out tunes to use as theme music. Suggestions? Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks for listening, and tune in live if you can Thursdays from 1 – 2 p.m. If not, you know where to find the podcast to catch up on your own schedule. Stay safe, be good to each other, and go easy on yourself. Later.
