Open Sources (Ep. #403) Show Notes for December 1, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we catch up with old friends. Dinner with friends has gotten the former U.S. President into trouble again, and being a little too quick with the proverbial hickory stick has made a lot of people in China mad at their president-for-life. Guess we’ll just have to make some new friends, and that’s what we do this week as we interview another one of Guelph’s new councillors.

Open Sources (Ep. #402) Show Notes for November 24, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to play the beautiful game: Amateur political punditry! In that context, we’re also going to talk about all the issues around that other game being played on the world stage this week, and we’re also going to talk about the national stage and the latest moves at a certain inquiry, plus the local stage with another new city councillor who’ll talk about a very big first meeting.

Open Sources (Ep. #401) Show Notes for November 17, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph we’re going to undermine the show we’ve put so much time and energy into. All the kids are doing self-destruction these days, whether that’s governments failing on climate action, or a certain billionaire failing with business management. We’re going to talk about that, and then we’ll talk to someone who isn’t failing, one of the new Guelph city councillors. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #401) Show Notes for November 17, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #399) Show Notes for November 3, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to talk about some of our favourite characters. The latest hearings in the Emergencies Act inquiry brought out a lot of famous names from the Freedom Convoy, and they we’ll dip south of the border to catch up with some long forgotten friends there. In the back half, we’ll have to say a surprise goodbye to a frequent friend of the show who was just voted out. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #399) Show Notes for November 3, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #398) Show Notes for October 27, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s back to normal. Or, at least, what passes for normal. With the election over, the format is getting back to normal at least with two news items and an interview. This week, we’re talking about the inquiry into the Emergencies Act, and the still relatively new government in Queen’s Park, plus we will have an interview with an outgoing member of city council about a job well done. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #398) Show Notes for October 27, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #397) Show Notes for October 20, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the election ends. Well, technically the election ends on Election Day, which is Monday October 24, but in terms of our own election coverage, this is the end. We’ve got three interviews with three mayoral candidates on this week’s show, from the person who wants to be a very different mayor, to someone that wants to blow up the role of mayor, and last, but not least, the incumbent mayor.
