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 drive straight into the latest divisive issue in Vancouver — new residential parking fees that could cost some taxpayers thousands of dollars; then onto escalating budgets and centralization of power in the Premier’s Office; and finally, school’s almost out – but back to school in September is looking a whole lot brighter than it did last year.

- Last week’s UnSpun…well, it was awesome. If you missed, watch. If you watched, you’ll likely watch it again. Because you KNOW.
- Don’t miss Jody Vance’s piece this week on the passing of her beloved Dad, and the long-term care workers – heroes, every one – who helped her family through the most difficult of times.
- #BCPOLI Hotstove tried to cover a very, very busy week. Did they succeed? I mean, my opinion is “yes,” but you’re gonna have to watch and/or listen and see and/or hear for yourself.
