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 jump in! The federal election continues to surprise with a dead heat and the Conservatives continue to drive the agenda; anti-tax protests further divide the vax on non-vax people, which never ends well; and speaking of animals versus humans — multiple attacks by coyotes in Stanley Park has more people calling for their full removal from the 1,000 acre park in the City of Vancouver – but will that happen?
