UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 118

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 ask are we heading into bigger lockdowns and can we stop with the vaccine envy issues and Covid blame game; also — you hear why, for the 56-65 age set, it feels a lot like Amazing Race — Vaccine Edition; and, ummm, George has some theories on the NPA and politics in Vancouver.

  • Last week's UnSpun fired the starter pistol for the Great Vaccine Race, wondered how Premier Dad could stumble so badly, and waded into the bureaucratic slog that is dealing with the City of Vancouver.
  • Pandemic despair and taxing thin air dominated discussion on this week's #BCPOLI Hotstove.
  • Dunno about you, but I enjoy classic episodes - because they're awesome, but also to check back in on stories we've forgotten. Like UnSpun 3, when Jody and George focused on the Plecas report, MAGA Hat kid, Skytrain to UBC, and the VPD’s arrests of 47 men for trying to buy sex from underage teens.
