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 put their bets on September 20th federal election; muse about vaccine passports locally and internationally; raise concerns about case counts and masks; and howl at the City of Vancouver and Park Board for, as usual, not doing their job.

- Last week on UnSpun…well, there was no last week on UnSpun. Summer break. They happen. But the week before was a banger.
- Political Capital also took last week off. And this week, actually. I know, I know.
- Jody Vance: It’s time to start thinking of mental health as crucial, and the brain as another vital organ to maintain – and heal, when need be.
