We’re got none! Open Sources Guelph is taking the week off due to special programming on CFRU, the celebration of the station’s birth many decades ago. What you can do instead is tune in between 5 to 8 pm where you can listen to some of your favourite programmers spin tunes and celebrate 50-something (Shhhhhhh!) years of your favourite campus and community station, which this time is broadcasting live from the Bullring! Tune in on the radio or brave the snow to be there in-person!! As for the OSG gang, we’ll see you again next week!!!
This week on Open Sources Guelph it’s Blue Thursday, the saddest Thursday of the week. To celebrate, we’re going to talk about the Code Blue in our healthcare system that Ontario’s inglorious premier thinks he’s solved, and then we’re going to talk about some issues around Toronto’s men and women in blue, the members of its police service. But it’s not all depressing because we’ve brought in an old friend to talk about all the math city council will be doing next week!

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got déjà vu, or should we say, “déjà coup”. A lot of people have made that joke, so let’s talk about the very serious issues behind that with some concerning recent undemocratic events in Brazil. We will also talk about one of Scotty’s favourite issues, rich people having too much money! In the back half of the show, we’re going to talk to the man who might be the most obsessively environmental person in Ontario politics not named Mike.

This week on Open Sources Guelph we’re back at work! That was a nice holiday break but the news doesn’t stop, even though we do (for a time). So on this show, we’re catching up with the crazy politics of the United States, which did not take a holiday break, and we will catch up with the War in Ukraine because there was no holiday break there either. For the interview this week, we will finish up our round of interviews with the new city councillors by chatting with the new guy representing Ward 6.

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we come to the final episode of the year. As fans of our show know, when the time comes for the last show of the year, then it’s time for the awards. The campaign is completed, the votes are in, and the trophies have been polished and stamped. So put on your tux, book your limousine, and pop the champagne as we usher in the new year with the OSGenies (Thoughts on the name?).

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s holiday time and you know what that means. For the last seven years, we’ve dedicated the last episode before Christmas to some of our favourite political movies, and year eight will be no different. Before you are four titles for your consideration, some of them are recent, some of them are very recent, and at least one title is from the tumultuous Sixties. Shall we stream? Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #406) Show Notes for December 22, 2022”
This week on Open Sources Guelph, we start wrapping up the year in the same way we started it: political rancour and insurrection! We will briefly pause to consider the potential ramifications of the Federal Liberals winning a Liberal riding in a by-election, and then we will dive into the plot to overthrow Germany. In the back half of the show, we will talk to a fired up Green politician who has some end of the year thoughts. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #405) Show Notes for December 15, 2022”
