  • Dingus, New York circa 1931 following The Local Meat Boom of 1928.

Dinges, New York is located somewhere in the Catskills. For as long as anyone can remember, it's been a mere hamlet. But recently, a sudden influx of Downstaters seeking a more authentic lifestyle and slow-cooked local meats has turned this quiet hamlet into a full-fledged village. Things are changing quickly in Dinges (pronounced Ding-gus by the Locals, or Din-jes by the Downstaters). And here's the thing: many of the Locals—the old Locals, not the new ones—aren't super excited about all this new authenticity. They're not sure why local meat has to take so damn long to cook, either. In any case, trouble is brewing, along with so much maté, which really isn't very good.

Dinges is made up of local writers, actors, comedians, and musicians we generously let headline in our podcast, "The Locals", a variety show that may be described as the Late Show meets A Prairie Home Companion...but with swearing.

Delicious meats brought the Dingites to Dinges, but their performances earned them residence. Tune in or show up—BSP Kingston is Dinging.
