Welcome to UnSpun - The Orca's current events podcast and YouTube show. This week, Jody Vance and Sarah Kirby-Yung unspin the latest news in local, provincial, federal politics, and much more.
As Jody Vance suffers separation anxiety over the departure of her much-beloved UnSpun co-host George Affleck, we move to a new format with guest hosts.
First up, an #underscore in Vancouver City Councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung. Two strong women dive into the headlines, starting with Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry’s bombshell about receiving death threats where her male counterparts were not. SKY talks Strathcona Park failures and how the Mayor voted against an urgent solution at an emergency meeting. Politics in a pandemic and how the provincial government decision to call a snap election felt for her.
