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.

This Thursday, November 5, at 5 pm, Scotty Hertz and Adam A. Donaldson will discuss:

The Aftermath. It’s two days out from Election Night, and boy was it a gas! Fortunately though, no one was actually gassed, and whether people will remain ungassed in the days to come is going to be the bigger question. It’s a big question as to whether or not we will know all the final results by show time, but we will try and talk about the results from the Presidential race, the House and Senate races, and all the crazy QAnon people that are now in the halls of Deep State power in Washington.

Kill Screens? One of the thing that we’ve all had to acclimatize to in the pandemic is spending a lot more time in front of screens, but what are the effects of that, especially on the kids? This week we’re joined by University of Guelph family studies prof Jess Haines, who’s appearing in an episode of CBC’s The Nature of Things on November 13 called “Kids Vs Screens”, to talk about the effects of too much screen time, the best ways parents can model good screen behaviour, and how they should manage screen time for the kids.

Open Sources is live on CFRU 93.3 fm and at 5 pm on Thursday.
