Welcome to UnSpun - The Orca's current events podcast and YouTube show. Every week, Jody Vance and George Affleck unspin the latest news in local, provincial, federal politics, and much more.
Jody and George get excited about the Covid19 numbers and BC’s vaccine rollout success; then the battle of motions continues at Vancouver’s City Hall — redundancies and all; and finally, what happened to the 215 children buried at the Kamloops’s Residential School begs the question about what kind of Canada do we want to be?
