CML - Web Discussions


A series of online discussions between CML members about issues that affect them. Join them live every week on Wednesday: Los Angeles 10 am, New York 1 pm, UK 6 pm, Western Europe 19:00, India 10:30 pm (times may vary when countries transition to/from summer time). You'll get to see the full unexpurgated version then!  :-)
