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 can’t avoid the 1, 2, 3 and counting instances of Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau wearing blackface and what that means to his campaign. Then — Darryl Plecas, Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia, is back in the news with the release of a report from the province’s auditor general — so far nobody has puked. And what about the kids who vape and then others who need a clean drink of water? Jody and George have something to say on that, too.
