Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 19, 2017

It’s time for another week of fun and adventure here on Open Sources Guelph, and by “fun” and “adventure”, we mean concern and insanity. Back in the U.S., the president decided that he’s had enough of international diplomacy no matter how well it’s working. Meanwhile, in Calgary, the voters there have decided that they like their current municipal leadership just fine, thank you. But there is cause for concern. For instance, might Canada be primed for its own big short? And what about your Halloween costume, is it politically correct enough?  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 12, 2017

Open Sources Guelph is your voice for depressing news. Not always, of course, but definitely this week. For instance, we have to talk again about why Truth and Reconciliation with our Indigenous people seems just as far away as it’s ever been. We also have to talk about why there seems to be no new help for Guelph’s most vulnerable people. And to top it all off, we have to talk about why another beloved pipeline will never see the light of day. Okay, so that last topic is not so depressing to some, especially this week’s guests who are two leaders of the Green Party.  Continue reading

This calls for a celebration! That seems to be the news this week on Open Sources Guelph, because, as they say, every dark cloud has a silver lining. That dark cloud includes some violence in Spain over a vote of independence by one of the regions there, and the pitiful reaction of the U.S. government to recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. The silver lining? How about the fact that a federal party elected a visible minority as its new leader? Or the fact that the electoral reform fight is far from over?  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 28, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going international, and then we’re coming around again all the way back to local affairs. So we’ll go Dutch on the German election and talk about our great expectations, and greater disappointments with the vote. Then, in Canada, your boyfriend Justin Trudeau’s having trouble with tax reform, and if you thought maybe Chelsea Manning can help, she’s not allowed into the country apparently. To wrap up, we’ll talk about the non-fun had by Guelphites following this year’s Homecoming frivolity.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 21, 2017

Scotty’s back! The Hertz will be back on Open Sources Guelph this week, in person, following his international tour, and we’ll give him some time and space this week to get back into a Canadian frame of mind with a couple of sweet topics. One the one hand, a new NDP leader is about to be named, and on the other, a beloved face of the past is promising a political return (for us to make fun of). All that, plus some news from away, and an interview with a U of G prof that knows all about statue drama… Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 14, 2017

As Scotty Hertz continues his search for King Solomon’s mine or whatever, the retconning of Open Sources Guelph this week continues with its transformation into a hardcore news show without any of that working class hero nonsense. So what are we doing this week? We’ve got the singing city councillor, and Guelph’s most well-known pot activist! Okay, so it’s not going to be *super* serious, but we’re going to tackle serious issues, in a serious way, with some fine and affable local characters. In other words… Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 7, 2017

Scotty Hertz will be taking some much needed vacation time for the next couple of weeks, which leaves Adam to wonder, “When did Open Sources Guelph add vacation time for staff?” Joking aside, the show, as they say, must go on. And for this week Adam will not fly solo by filling Scotty’s shoes with a pair of special guests, one person to talk about civic matters, and another to talk about science matters.  Continue reading
