UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 61

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 continue their focus on the hottest story worldwide that is literally gone viral — COVID-19. Of course what’s a week without chatting about protests and backroom negotiations, some more opaque than others; and finally rooms with no views; political rumours that hit close to home; and, what do these Bs have in common — Bernie, Biden, Beto and Buttigieg ?
