Episodes

Episode 7:  Our guest relates their story of falling out of love with the Upper Valley: the ugliness they have uncovered behind the community’s beautiful facade, the false lure of inclusion disappointed by the enduring reality of the harm being caused to black and brown bodies, here in this space, in these times.

Episode 6: Our guest talks about her community in France vs. her community in the Upper Valley, how she has and has not initiated community activity, and how her family life and children have played a role in her community.

Episode 5: An interview with a relatively new Vermont resident, who is trans-gender, and gives their experience(s) of living in the Upper Valley.

Episode 4: A special episode with the co-creators about the mission and creation of the Intersections podcast.

Episode 3: Our 3rd guest remembers days of open fields and outdoor games as a foundation for building community, and invites us all to reflect on how we reach out to connect with one another; how does inclusion happen when contact is mitigated through a computer screen and wifi access?

Episode 2:  Our second guest shares a vision of how our cycles of life feed the source of community, amongst humans and throughout the natural world, offering a gentle map of the small things that bring us together: harvesting tomatoes, the neighbor’s mailbox, the porcupine, the cockroach, the softening of the eyes.

Episode 1:  Our first guest recounts a vision of community grounded in a childhood in East Texas, and the challenges of losing a sense of connection upon arriving in New England. (Pilot 2/14/22)
