Often, truth isn’t handed down from public officials but comes from listening to other voices. Once a week, you can hear a wide variety of views from people who shape our corner of the world in New York’s Capital Region. The Altamont Enterprise is the weekly newspaper of record for Albany County, New York.

We’ve talked with a Buddhist who provided therapy for Gilda Radner and then helped set up Gilda’s Club after she died; with a Muslim woman who is trying to educate people about her religion as she feels increased hatred; with an African-American man who, as a teenager, helped ferry people north from a town in Mississippi haunted by lynchings.

Eliza Anne Cohen-Prue is in the arms of her father, Keegan Prue, with her mother, Olivia Cohen-Prue, by her side and their greyhound, Desmond, at their feet, in their Altamont yard. Olivia gave birth to Eliza on July 12 after a day-long labor and a years-long odyssey to get and stay pregnant. With 1 in 8 couples unable to conceive, Olivia and Keegan came to realize that many others had similar experiences although few talked about it. They courageously shared their journey with three rounds of in vitro fertilization and two miscarriages in an Enterprise story last fall, which made their pregnancy and Eliza’s birth a cause for celebration among Altamont Enterprise readers. In this week’s podcast, Olivia and Keegan — with occasionally burbles from Eliza — tell their story of love, loss, heartbreak, perseverance, and happiness. — Photo from Keegan Prue
