UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck -- Episode 108

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 ask whether schools are going far enough to protect our kids and teachers from COVID-19 and if the federal government is letting us down when it comes to vaccines; then it’s party talk — from Covidiots holding a private party in a Vancouver tower, to desperate football fans dreaming of chicken wings and beer for Super Bowl. And don’t get Jody started on who will win the Big Game!

  • Last week's UnSpun tackled vaccine supply, blitzed through Dr. Bonnie Henry's public relations, and called an audible on Vancouver's parking strategy. (Yes, we've got football on the brain this week. Also, football. Football!)
  • In this episode, Jody dives into her column this week, in which she threw the flag (yep, we're keeping this running gag going) on mass Super Bowl plans.
  • If UnSpun is the big leagues of Orca podcasts, #BCPOLI Hotstove is...Arena Football, maybe? Not as polished, the production values are a little more modest, and Jordan throws on every play.
