My name is Astrid! You can listen to me in the afternoons during the week. When I’m not on the air, I like to take photos, travel and play board games with my husband and our friends. I was raised in Endwell, New York, but I’m currently living in Binghamton with a cocker spaniel-poodle mix dog named Porter (after the beer, of course). I drink more tea than water usually. I like potatoes and (almost) any and all Mexican food. You can find me at one of the breweries downtown on the weekends. Please say hello if you see me!
