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 optimistically chart the numbers on re-opening BC, Canada and the world and wonder when joints for jabs might come to BC; the City of Vancouver had a busy week — some good, some bad. But tolls into the city – really? And finally, the NDP continues to see solid polling numbers but managing their diverse supporters creates a precarious political balancing act.
