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 the first show of UnSpun YEAR THREE, George and Jody can’t help but start off on the riots in DC and a 2017 takeover protest at Vancouver City Hall; then they get into Covid land, where we hear clued out politicians thought taking a sunny vacation during Christmas was a smart move (note: it was not); and finally Jody’s dogs take a bite out of our sound and video mix.
Happy New Year!

- The last UnSpun…was really the LAST UnSpun. (Of last year.)
- Last February, Jody Vance pondered the Wet’suwet’en protests, and how to solve the impasse.
- Jock Finlayson looked at President-elect Joe Biden (he won, just in case that was somehow obscured this week) and what his likely policies might mean for BC and Canada.
