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 boyfriend 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 fondue, fried 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!
