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 freedom of information and why the latest move by the BC NDP Provincial Government to charge a fee for information is undemocratic and dangerous; then it’s onto Vancouver where Mayor Kennedy Stewart makes pie in the sky announcements about housing more about re-election then successful policymaking; meanwhile, in Surrey, things are heating up in the fight over policing; and finally, Jody shares two emotional journeys that are a must-see and hear.

- Last week was a great show, but let’s be honest – the birthday was the BIG draw.
- Why are the NDP spitting into the wind on Freedom of Information? They may have tipped their hand two years ago.
- Jody mentions her remarkable experience (and column!) at Justin Trudeau’s belated trip to the former Kamloops Residential School site.
