EDGE OF EAST Jackie Torrens

About Edge of East:
Jackie Torrens propels herself off the edge of the east coast by investigating three rich and surprising subcultures that have unique ties to the Maritime identity; the UFO believers of Shag Harbour, the Steampunks of Halifax and the Yodelers of King’s County. What can these offbeat subcultures tell us about the east coast identity that we haven’t heard before? Our curious host Jackie Torrens goes on a road trip to answer this question. She also discovers the unexpected ties these three seemingly unconnected groups share.
