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.
It’s year three of a four-year term for your municipal councils. Are you happy with your locally elected and should they be taking pay raises? The cost of pre-zoning and why it fuels speculation. And finally — Covid-19 vaccines, are you ready and willing?

- Speaking of Year Three, last week’s UnSpun was the official kickoff to the (wait for it) third year of the show. Only difference is the four-year mandate. Jody and George can keep doing this show forever, if I have anything to say about it. And I do!
- Jody Vance references the big news in her world: as an essential caregiver, she has received the first dose of COVID-19 vaccine. Here’s how it happened.
- Vancouver City Councillor Sarah Kirby-Yung walked you through the process (and more) of how the city moved towards establishing a new office. WATCH THE SAUSAGE GET MADE.
