After two weeks of airing special hour-long, all-flooding-all-the-time episodes of our weekly radio show, the Watershed Post Half-Hour News Hour, today we're back to airing our standard 30-minute format.

The subject matter, however, is the same as its been since Hurricane Irene hit the Catskills on August 28: Flooding. Today's on-air guest is Martha Frankel -- author, celebrity journalist, and West Shokan resident -- talking about the damage Irene and Lee wreaked on the town of Olive and the hamlet of Boiceville, and why the town's woes have gone under-reported in the media so far.

The Watershed Post Half-Hour News Hour airs live at 1pm on Wednesdays on WIOX 91.3 FM in Roxbury and online at

We have also been appearing regularly on WGXC 90.7 FM, a fantastic community radio station that covers Greene and Columbia counties.
