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 run the gamut from Kevin Bacon to the Kevin Falcon campaign; it’s also time to talk about the confusion over decriminalizing drugs versus legalizing; and what kind of impression, if any, did Prime Minister Trudeau make on the world and the future of the environment at the COP-26. All this and more on UnSpun.
