About Beyond Spin
Talk radio is supposed to be fun and once upon a time it was. It’s time to go beyond the partisan talking points dressed up with the spin of artificial certainty. Reno deserves political and cultural commentary, from Reno, that reflects Northern Nevada. Join Ed Lyngar and “Beyond Spin”, Monday through Friday afternoon from 2 pm to 3 pm for political guests, authors and freewheeling personalities of all types that tackle the local and national issues you care about.
