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.
Down to the wire in the federal election! Jody and George try to figure out where things went wrong (or right) for the various candidates; then on to the sad state of Alberta; and finally, is Vancouver going to get a handle on the crime wave hitting downtown? — maybe. All that and more — in only 30 minutes.
