UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 55

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.

In this week's episode: we’ve got ride sharing, people! Just in time for Christmas, too — Christmas 2020 that is. Meanwhile, at Oppenheimer Park — Mayor Kennedy Stewart has a solution for that and homelessness — he promises. Agh — we’ve heard that before. And remember, sometimes a doughnut is just a doughnut. That's no snow job, either.

  • Last week's UnSpun covered a lot of ground - but it would have been even more, were it not for SNOWMAGGEDON.
  • Classic UnSpun? How about 26? George and Jody talked towers, reconciliation, and waded into the muck (it's not muck) of Vancouver's sewage problem.
  • MORE classic UnSpun? You got it. In 18, topics included Gregor Robertson, Daryl Plecas, and (I've been waiting to use this again) The Mother of All Byelections (tm).
