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.
George is back with some post-provincial election chat and his own personal experience of being a candidate in the provincial election. After you get it enough of that — it is back to city hall and chair-gate and veterans-gate and parking-gate and toll-gate brought to you by the City of Vancouver.
