The Falmouth Forum series hits the airwaves in collaboration with WCAI, the Cape, Coast, and Islands NPR station. Forum speakers will join host Mindy Todd on “The Point” at 9:00 AM on the first Thursday of each month for discussion and listener Q&A. This page will be updated as details become available.
