Selections from Twenty Summers, Season Six


Twenty Summers was founded to restore the Hawthorne Barn in Provincetown, promote the creation of art and provide opportunities for the public to engage with art and artists. In cooperation with Twenty Summers, WCAI brings you the first of several conversations recorded at the Hawthorne Barn. The opening night of Season Six brought together two esteemed newswomen, photojournalist Susan Meiselas and writer Elizabeth Rubin. For decades, their work in strife-torn regions around the world has helped the rest of us see behind closed doors and beyond borders. Through words and images, they have exposed human rights violations and profiled a wide variety of influential figures, from world leaders to artists and strippers, from criminals to political activists.


Mindy Todd is the host and producer of The Point on WCAI which examines critical issues for Cape Cod and the Islands. She brings more than 30 years of experience in radio and television to WCAI. After starting her broadcasting career as a midday DJ at WARE in Ware, Massachusetts, she quickly advanced to host of the morning drive show, which in 1981, made her one of the few women in broadcasting to anchor her own morning show. Her career has covered nearly all aspects of broadcasting. She has been a radio disc jockey, a traffic reporter, a television news anchor and reporter, a program director, talk show host, and even a ski reporter. Her television work brought her to White River Junction, VT, Portland, ME, Indianapolis, IN and Nashville, TN. Mindy also worked at radio stations in West Palm Beach, FL, Hartford, CT, Boston, MA and Lebanon, NH. She has received numerous awards, most recently her 5th National PRNDI (Public Radio News Directors Incorporated) award for best Call-in program and best Interview.
