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.
George and Jody touch on Trump and Biden — but with no final results at recording — who knows what will happen; then it’s back to Vancouver and the latest comments from the Mayor — while he may be gobsmacked, we are not amused; and then more worries on the downtown eastside of the city and rumours and innuendo about who will be the next leader of the BC Liberals.

- UnSpun 94 saw the triumphant return of prodigal host George Affleck after his mystery month away.
- Ah-ha! You’ve noticed the jump from 94 to this week’s Episode 96 – Orca readers are nothing if not smart. UnSpun 95 was a bonus episode (yaaay!) as Jody Vance welcomed fellow broadcasting trailblazer Jill Krop.
- Assessing the putative BC Liberal contenders was also the main thrust of this week’s #BCPOLI Hotstove.
