Nothing is more important to our democracy and our politics than open discussion. Free debate about the ideas and policies that shape our province and country.

For a long time, B.C.’s online media landscape has consistently pulled in the same direction, leaving an obvious gap in the marketplace – or if you prefer, an opportunity.

The Orca's podcast network looks at B.C.'s competitiveness in a global marketplace, creating jobs and opportunity, and what it takes to create, attract, and retain talent and investment.

Our focus is on public policy, issues, and ideas that affect the B.C. economy, investment, jobs and long-term prosperity and opportunities for everyday British Columbians.

What matters most isn’t whether we agree, but how we engage with each other. The Orca believes in intelligent, reasoned debate; fresh thinking; and a combination of common sense and new ideas.

    UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 170

    UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 170

    Jody and George say goodbye (for now?) to being hosted on The Orca and hello to our new home — unspunpodcast.com.
    That’s the new news for now, meanwhile in other things spinning. The politics of Roe V Wade in the USA proves that a wedge issue like that can really galvanize the voter and things are sure to get interesting over the next few months. In Canada, we have wedge issues and politics pushing our buttons every day. Kevin Falcon will soon be raising a lot of noise in BC’s Legislature as a new MLA and leader of the opposition. And in Vancouver — a new poll looks to be saying that Kennedy Stewart will be the next mayor of Vancouver.
    All that and more on UnSpun.

#BCPoli

Love the podcasts...but Jordan’s audio on #BCPoli Hotstove is a little off sometimes. Either way too loud or a lot of microphone noise. But still listen to it every week!

Whitty, dry humour mixed with pertinent information and discussions about all things #bcpoli.
