Then, guest Doug George-Kanentiio, who was born and raised at the Mohawk Territory of Akwesasne.

Tuesday, August 9 at 12:00 noon.
8:45 PM, an interview with the king of dobro players, Jerry Douglas, best known for playing in Allison Krauss’ band. But he is on 1,600 albums, and that’s a conservative count.
9:30 PM, an interview with Peter Bush, Fairfield County Top 40 DJ (“The Fox”) and classic car expert who’s the MC at Caffeine and Carburetors, the informal—but very big—old car get-together in New Canaan.
10:30 PM, Michael Mugrage and Diane Scanlon. Diane got her start in Bridgeport as part of the Rick McDonald Group. Her songs have been recorded by Eva Cassidy, Vince Gill, Tramaine Hawkins, Darlene Love, Laura Branigan and others. Michael Mugrage is also a songwriter, a musical director for Ronnie Spector, and a former member of Orleans. He wrote songs for Smokey Robinson, Chaka Khan, Average White Band and ABC’s Good Morning America. Together, they form White Feather Music Production.
Surprisingly, our narcissistic culture has actually been remiss by failing this one time to place ourselves at the center of attention. In our focus on what climate change is doing to the planet and to our physical selves, researchers have not yet investigated what it’s been doing to the human psyche, to our own mental selves. This month’s Tidings will synthesize multiple perspectives from the emerging field of climate psychology to provide insights into new phenomena such as eco-anxiety, eco-grief, anticipatory loss and environmental identity across our own and international landscapes and identify who among us is carrying the greatest psychological impact of climate change.
