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 get into the tangled mess and planning hell at City Hall in Vancouver; then they wonder how a tow truck company could simply drop off a derelict trailer in a city park; and finally, it’s a pandemic, people. Just follow the rules for now. It’s not that hard.

- Last week on UnSpun, Jody and George discussed the even-more-staggering overdose numbers, and the giant mess – both figurative and literal – at Strathcona Park.
- Gaby Wickstrom offers a slightly different take on public health orders and messaging – nagging gets to be counterproductive. Instead, show what doing better looks like.
- I like to listen back to classic podcasts to remember the Before Times. And I’m betting you do, too. In UnSpun 7, Jody and George discussed the 2019 provincial budget, snow in Vancouver, and the Plecas Report. Which one, you ask? Click and find out.
