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.
This week, Jody and George speculate on MP Jody Wilson-Raybould’s next move after her decision to leave federal politics; then it’s untangling Vancouver Mayor Kennedy Stewart’s credit-stealing tweet and press releases; also — Vancouver Park Board — really?; and finally, wildfires, big announcements and a new Governor General. It’s a packed week.

- Last week on UnSpun…well, there wasn’t a last week on UnSpun. (Summer vacations: they’re fantastic.) But the week before, George and Jody talked Vancouver polls, police, park board, and peccadillos. (If only.)
- Don’t miss the latest episode of Ellected, where Sarah Elder-Chamanara welcomes bestselling author Alison Tedford.
- Jody mentions being out of reach much of the day (and you may have spotted the new backdrop.) Here’s why.
