Open Sources (Ep. #361) Show Notes for January 20, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s a “Blue Thursday” and we will tackle all kinds of issues making the rounds in what might be the saddest week of the year. Back to School was messed up by a snow day, and then we will memorialize a Canadian political legend who passed away last weekend. In the back half of the show, we will cover some sports news (?), and then we will take a frightening look at the immediate future.

Open Sources (Ep. #360) Show Notes for January 13, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will demonstrate for some under-reported news stories. For instance, are we putting too much on the back of the vaccine hesitancy movement, and why haven’t we heard more about the far-right contenders in this year’s provincial election? Speaking of the coming vote, our guest this week is one of the candidates in Guelph, and she has a lot of healthcare expertise.

Open Sources (Ep. #359) Show Notes for January 6, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back after a holiday break. Did we miss anything? I know, we’ll tell you. Let’s see, we took a sudden U-turn back to lockdown this week in Ontario, but we did make some some progress on Truth and Reconciliation. On the other hand, it’s the first anniversary of that time a bunch of people tried to overthrow America for a game show host, and has anyone heard from Putin lately? Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #359) Show Notes for January 6, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #358) Show Notes for December 30, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will leave behind a year that introduced us to this guy, the Q Shaman, who broke into the U.S. Capitol with a few thousand of his friends, and then complained about not getting served organic food while in prison post-break-in. The Q Shaman was the mascot for an otherwise terrible 52 weeks of high-octane political and pandemic drama. As usual, we end the year with some awards. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #358) Show Notes for December 30, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #357) Show Notes for December 23, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s the most wonderful time of the year… Time for our year end specials!! As our Christmas gift to you, we’re sharing our annual political movie picks in the seventh annual round of this not-festive, but definitely fun holiday tradition. This year’s slate features a probing documentary, two true-life stories, and a silly drama that thinks it’s a serious social commentary. Hang up your stockings, and then sit back with some hot coco as we talk about the movies. And politics. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #357) Show Notes for December 23, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #356) Show Notes for December 16, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re concerned with a matter of mayors. In our interview segment this week, we will talk to Guelph’s Mayor for a year-end chat, and before that we will talk about the passing of another mayor, one of Toronto’s most historic and colourful. Before that, we will cover a little philosophical ground by asking if the time has come for Canada to seek a trial separation from the U.S. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #356) Show Notes for December 16, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #355) Show Notes for December 9, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re getting serious. Once again, December 6 was marked by the nation, but are we doing enough to think about gender-based violence everyday? Can we really get China to start changing course by refusing to play winter sports with them? And, because we’re also locally sourced, we will take a look at the ledgers at City Hall with someone who knows them very well. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #355) Show Notes for December 9, 2021”
