UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 106

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 on UnSpun, something big happened this week in USA. Did you hear? One of the key promises being made by President Biden’s communications team — transparency and truth. We like that. Here in BC, the rollout for the Covid-19 vaccine is hitting some bumps and people are not happy with it. Could we be doing a better job? And school boards — how is that some bad apples can continue as elected trustees when they seem to have no respect for why they're there?
