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 talk about the sudden amazing race for the Covid vaccine for people 55-65. Then Premier Dad gets a roasting. And come on Vancouver, you had a chance to get rid of the permit backlog but instead chose a more bureaucratic path. Why?

- Last week’s UnSpun plunged Vancouver’s $645 toilet, found new kindred spirits, and much more.
- Premier Dad slipped up this week – and fine, everyone makes mistakes. But what’s surprising is usually he’s savvy enough to apologize and stop the bleeding.
- Jody’s column this week remembers a youth spent living paycheque to paycheque and tip to tip – and how these people need help right now, not blame.
