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 continue their quest to understand the logic and logistics of the vaccine rollout; then they ask why can’t communities that have received full vaccinations open up completely; and finally, of course, fun and games on Granville, in North Van, and whatever beach you might find.

- Last week’s UnSpun waded into the uncomfortable realm of gang violence, Strathcona Park decampment, and who’s gonna save the PNE?
- Jody mentions her column this week – Granville Street has fallen on hard (and rough) times. It doesn’t have to be this way.
- BC’s vaccine rollout was also top of mind for Political Capital 4.
