UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 72

...featuring Maclean Kay as George Affleck! Welcome to UnSpun - The Orca's current events podcast and YouTube show. Every week, Jody Vance and George Affleck (or a pale imitation) unspin the latest news in local, provincial, federal politics, and much more.

Switcheroo Week continues! On this week’s show, Jody Vance and Maclean Kay look at a Wet’suwet’en agreement that doesn’t appear to have local agreement, wonder if side gigs in government are appropriate, compare back to school stories, and pick at a couple of stories that have gone dormant during the pandemic.

  • Switcheroo Week began with Jordan Bateman welcoming George Affleck to BCPOLI Hotstove. Punditry ensued.
  • Jody and Maclean discuss going back to school, and the personal decisions that go into it. Here's Jody's column on her family's process.
  • Craving the classic UnSpun combo? Too bad, you'll have to wait another two weeks. But then again, who could blame you - George and Jody are pretty great. Here's last week's UnSpun to tide you over.
