UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 67

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 take a look at how political posturing has begun to rear its ugly head (three words — money, money, money) and may provide a taste of what the world will look like when we are a COVID-free world (and being COVID-free we hope will be sooner than later).

  • Last week's UnSpun talked economic impact of the pandemic locally, provincially, nationally, and around the world.
  • Jody Vance: You've got fewer dollars to invest back into the economy - be strategic about who and where gets them. (In other words: shop local.)
  • One potential solution for media is requiring content aggregators to share the revenue they collect with the media that creates it - which, as Doug Firby notes, is the the path France is on right now.
