UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 69

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 keep things hopeful and positive. Yup! Well — except where they need to drill into some questionable decisions from local, provincial and federal governments. But all in all, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
