Cambridge Broadband Matters is a new series, produced by Anne Schweiger and Cambridge Community Television, which will explore the relationship among people, public institutions, non-profit organizations, businesses, and broadband in Cambridge. This series will serve as an educational and community engagement companion to broadband planning and action already underway in Cambridge, including through the work of the City of Cambridge Broadband Task Force and the efforts of local elected officials.

In the first episode of the series, Jay Leslie, Susan Flannery, Georgiana Chevry, and Ann Schweiger discuss how broadband enters the spheres of their work and the impact broadband has on the community members who engage with their respective organizations. Cambridge Broadband Matters airs Tuesday August 11th at 1pm on Channel 96, Thursday August 13th at 9pm on Channel 96, and Friday August 14th at 7pm on Channel 9.

Watch this week's new member productions, on Friday August 14th at 7pm on Chanel 9, and on Tuesday at 1pm and Thursday at 9pm Channel 96. This week, look for a new episode of John Manson's series #whatImake, a show about people making things and why they do it, in which he profiles local writer and 3-D illustrator Marika McCoola.

Tasting History/El Sabor de la Historia profiles ecologist Jesus Garcia, whose life is split across the border between the U.S. and Mexico, his family living in Sonora while he lives two hours north in Tucson, AZ. Watch in Spanish on Channel 96, Wednesday August 12 at 3:30pm.

The Story of Stuff is "a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look" at how our production and consumption patterns connect with environmental and social issues, and at how we can create a more sustainable and just world. Tune in on Channel 8, Monday August 10 at 1pm.
