This week, 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 show’s final segment, 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!

Aditya Batura – icon-headphones 23:50 into the Show
Aditya is one of the creators of Potato Pirates – a game that lowers anxiety while learning code and… somehow includes carb characters? Potato Pirates is a universal game that can be enjoyed by families, friends, educators, and geeks like me, of course. This game teaches basic programming concepts in just 1 hour, all without a computer!
Aditya and his team are launching Potato Pirates globally through Kickstarter. If you’re interested in learning code yourself or to learn more about Aditya and his team – you can find them at www.potatopirates.game.
What He Said. The words of Salman Rushdie before Charlottesville – 33:30 into the Show
In February 2017, Salman Rushdie made a prediction about the fragility and state of America – and its 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.
