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.
In this week’s episode Jody and George go deep into the protests taking place in Vancouver, Victoria and across Canada and how this hot button issue is dividing how we govern; then coronavirus has us asking” “what would you do if you couldn’t leave a quarantined cruise ship for weeks and weeks?” and finally the fate of golf courses in Vancouver, green space for all or development site for condos — you be the judge.

- UnSpun 57 introduced a new verb to the lexicon. That alone is worth a click.
- Classic UnSpun? In Episode 25, Jody and George gave the gears to Translink, looked at the disintegrating situation in Surrey City Hall, and pondered the then-upcoming federal election.
- More, you say? Your wish is my command. Way back in April 2019, UnSpun 15 surfed the blue wave of the Alberta election, took the high road on 4/20, and talked Mueller…Mueller. (High road! I just got that!)
