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.
In this week’s episode Jody and George get into the science and the spin of what may soon be a global pandemic of COVID-19. Then it’s more on pipeline politics and how the issue may be beyond management by governments; and finally to wrap up, they peek into the money-laundering inquiry, 420, and a major LGBTQ+ gaff by a Vancouver city councillor.
