This week special guest, singer/songwriter Cindy Doire joins us with an interesting way to execute an album launch. It’s called Panorama and arrives in September (see details below).

And later in the show – how techy are you? This show is a day late because my website went down yesterday – and I’m just techy enough that I could rebuild it myself. Today we’ll discuss a new learning technique that can bring you up to speed on coding – no computer required!

What he said. On the final segment of the show, we discuss Charlottesville, Virginia – referring to a strong warning from Salman Rushdie dating back to February 2017. I’ve got a message for you.

It’s life, music, talk – all grown up – you’re listening to the Nancy Duffy Show –let’s get started!

What He Said. The words of Salman Rushdie before Charlottesville –  icon-headphones 33:30 into the Show

Salman Rushdie
Salman Rushdie speaking at “Public Forum: A Well-Ordered Nation”

In February 2017 Salman Rushdie makes a prediction about the fragility and state of America that is showing signs of merit. It comes down to speed and vehement disagreement among parties and communities of people.

Prime Minister Trudeau was right in pointing out that we in Canada are not immune to racism and so it’s prudent for us to watch and learn from what’s happening in the US right now – as fallout on social media is spilling over borders.
