Welcome to UnSpun - The Orca's current events podcast and YouTube show. This week, Jody Vance and Drex unspin the latest news in local, provincial, federal politics, and much more.
As Jody Vance suffers separation anxiety over the departure of her much beloved Unseen Podcast Co-host this week on UnSpun, we do a deep dive into THE MEDIA. What’s changed? What’s better and what’s broken. Unpacking the truths surrounding the blame-game that hits this easy target all too often as an excuse for all the world’s ills.
Veteran broadcaster Drex gives his perspective on how media has evolved in recent years. We also get his stories on dealing with politicians …. and how he sees municipal, provincial and federal politics playing out in a pandemic. PLUS: just a little Trump talk.

- Jody Vance’s column this week looked ahead to winter, and foresaw trouble: we ask people with no outdoor space to stay safe and sane, and it can’t hold for long. We need to give people better options than walks around the block.
