Open Sources Show Notes for November 26, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph will formally start our transition to getting through these last few episodes before our Christmas break and the end of 2020. Still, it’s been another busy seven days in the news business, and we will spend our hour catching up with the Biden transition, and the creeping of conspiracy theories in Canada. Staying in Canada, we will also talk about the back end problems with the CERB, and how housing is still an issue despite the pandemic.

Open Sources Show Notes for November 19, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Plague, Death, War, and Spite. One of those may not be an actual Horseman, put it is a fairly succinct description of the current occupant of the White House who is letting Plague and Death run unchecked. Things aren’t much better plague-wise speaking here in Ontario, or in the rest of Canada, and that’s where War comes in. He’s got his own room in Alberta and everything!

Open Sources Show Notes for November 12, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s schadenfreude time! Sadly we can’t dedicate the whole hour to sad orange man, but we can discuss his status as a loser for at least one segment. After that, we will talk about the “Great Whole Foods Poppy Controversy of 2020” (TM), and we will talk to our local MPP about last week’s budget reveal, and the current status of fighting COVID-19 here in Ontario.

Open Sources Show Notes for November 5, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph feels like a million years. After going live-to-air on the U.S. Election Night, we’re back at our usual time slot on Thursday to talk about all the ins and outs and whatevers of the Presidential race, and all the other races in this consequential election year. For something a little less controversial, we’ll also talk to a University of Guelph researcher who has some things to say about the effects of that screen you’re looking at right now. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for November 5, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 29, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph is another one of those weeks where there’s almost too much news, and it’s not all related to the U.S. Presidential Election, which is definitely one of our topics for this show. Along with that, we will also talk about the four (!) elections we had in Canada this week, the continuing failures of Reconciliation in Caledonia, and labour strife in Alberta in their… healthcare sector?! Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 29, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 22, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to get into a realm of law and politics you’ve long demanded we visit: fishing rights! We will head out to the east coast for that big story on Indigenous rights, and then we will look at the recently renewed fracas over the WE scandal. Then, in the second half of the show, we will talk to an old friend and former colleague about the COVID-age at Guelph City Council. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 22, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 15, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got some leftovers to dig through on our post-Thanksgiving show. COVID is back, not that it ever really left, but things are getting more dangerous as the colder weather arrives. In other leftovers, we’re got “Blue Lives Matter” making a comeback, more news about the American election, and a surprising update about the battle against online hate.
