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 for a ride with the taxpayers of Vancouver who were about to face new parking regulations and fees, but common sense and fear of electoral failure prevailed; then it’s vaccinations and vacations and when should mandatory be mandatory in the workplace; and finally, did you hear the one about a prime minister who did not get the communications 101 memo — let’s call it Tofino-gate or The Tale of the Long Walk on Long Beach.
