UnSpun with Jody Vance and George Affleck — Episode 98

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 focus on the loss of thousands of businesses and how the Vancouver Board of Trade is not happy about what the City of Vancouver is NOT doing about it; the decriminalization of drug possession and how the Mayor of Vancouver is, once or perhaps thrice again, is writing a strongly worded letter to another level of government; and finally — Christmas or the holiday season or November in a pandemic, whatever you want to call it, let’s put our decorations up and be happy.

  • Last week's UnSpun delved into the absolute state of the city of Vancouver, and Donald Trump's unwillingness to concede defeat, and what to do during social lockdown.
  • Looks like Jody Vance's piece from last week needs an extension. Sadly.
  • Pandemic news makes me pine for simpler times - like UnSpun 8, when the issues were Jody Wilson-Raybould and dad jokes in the legislature. Sigh.
