The Cambridge Calendar television program pulls together details on all the events in Cambridge - so that you don't have to! We aggregate community calendars from the city government, local non-profits, universities, and community groups and present it all in a condensed 15-minute event clearinghouse program. Forget looking through local listings and websites for things to do. Let us tell it to you straight. And, by the way, our own online community calendar can tell you lots about the city and it's a great place to list your own events, too (cambridgecalendar.org).
This program is produced by staff and volunteers at Cambridge Community Television to fill the gap in Cambridge news and current affairs programming.

This episode focuses on a topic that seems to provoke a lot of opinion either for or against: charter schools and their future in the Bay State. School may out each summer, but the debate around charter schools never seems to take a vacation. It’s a topic for all seasons.
Host Barbara Anthony discusses charter schools with Jamie Gass, the Director of the Center for School Reform at the Pioneer Institute, Joanna Weiss, a free lance journalist, and a regular media commentator, and Glenn Koocher the Executive Director of the Massachusetts Association of School Committees. Barbara Anthony is a consultant in healthcare to the Pioneer Institute – but having nothing to do with education reform.Education
