UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 125

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 are super stoked about the reopening plan but wonder if the teasing could have been a bit shorter; then it's off to cruise ship land where George provides some theories on why the ships may want to come back to Vancouver and not do the Seattle start; and, finally — 12 story towers and patio culture in Vancouver — will they ever get it right?

  • Last week's UnSpun talked towers, camper vans, and (deep '50s science fiction voice) SPATIAL PLANNING.
  • Just a day or two ago (okay, literally two days ago) #BCPOLI Hotstove dove deep into the provincial government's then-just-released Restart 2.0 plan.
  • This was a big week for podcasts on The Orca - On A Second Look, host Justin P. Goodrich is joined by Calvin Chrustie, Managing Director of CC Resolve, to take (you guessed it) a second look at law enforcement.
