Scams feat. Orla Martyn

Season 2, Ep. 1

It's a New Year, and change is in the air. This week's guest is Orla Martyn, who talks about scams. Listen to my story about my Uber account being hacked and the lack of resolution. I still might write to CBC Marketplace about it. Topics discussed include vegan lifestyle, mood boards, and a major announcement I end up making. I hope you enjoy the looser energy and fun that this episode brings.
