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 go all federal and pump their biceps to show you how this election matters…or doesn’t; plus a little war room chat that will provide followers with some intel on the inner workings of election campaigns from the backroom; then the Massey Tunnel — boondoggle or bonanza? and finally, where is the leadership in BC and Vancouver? Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

- Last week on UnSpun, Jody and George placed their bets on the federal election, and did some howling.
- George and Jody reference this column by Maclean Kay (on their own free will! Honest!) about the reason we’re having this election in the first place.
- Trudeau’s decision to call an election could be the biggest moment of his political career – or one of the worst disasters in Canadian political history, says Michael Taube.
