Maybe you’ve seen the t-shirt. Maybe you own one. I sure do.

“Upstate & Chill” is a trademark saying from Hamilton & Adams, a cool and beloved retailer for men and women in Kingston, NY. For me, it perfectly captures the spirit of moving to the Hudson Valley and upstate New York so much so, it’s a lyric in our Cidiot anthem.

This second episode of Season 5, I interview Andrew Adotta of Hamilton & Adams about his path up here, opening a business, and more. We play Hudson Valley geography and he also shares his favorite spot not to mention a cidiot hiking story.
