Residents rights in nursing homes is the topic in a new lecture from the Milton Council on Aging.

MATV Director of Editing Gerry D’Apollo is the guest chef on a brand new episode of “Meet Me in the Kitchen,” where he and host Connie Spiros prepare a surprisingly easy but delicious dirty rice and kielbasa dish, perfect for weeknight dinner, along with a slightly sweet cast-iron cornbread. Tune in for this latest installment Tuesday mornings at 11 a.m. and all weekend long at 7 p.m., both on the Public channel.
“Broad Appeal” is featuring some very crafty design this month, with guest Allegra Murray who built her own company, The Petal Peddler’s Shop, that makes and sells floral jewelry, decorations and stationary made from the pages of old books. Join her and host Melissa Fassel Dunn for a discussion of how to build an artisan business from scratch on this new episode that is currently airing Tuesday evenings at 8 p.m. as well as Thursday mornings at 9 a.m. on the Public channel.
Resident Jim Dunphy has been refining his hobby of woodworking for years, making all kinds of intricate boxes, clocks, bowls, vessels and even smartphone amplifiers — that you don’t have to plug into anything. Take a tour through this craftsman’s works on a new episode of “A Fuller Life” when it airs Wednesday evenings at 8 p.m., as well as Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 3 p.m., all on the Public channel.
The “Fuller Talks” panel is at it again, with their main topics of discussion covering the importance of youth participation in politics as well as privacy and data control on social media. Tune in for this and additional news analysis in a new episode that is airing at 11:30 a.m. Friday, Saturday and Sunday as well as Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m., all on the Public channel.
