Open Sources Show Notes for February 6, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re sick…. of talking about certain things. It may be closer to Valentine’s Day than it is to Festivus, but we have some grievances to air on this week’s show! From the disappointing end to you-know-who’s impeachment to the pendulum doom out of China that the media’s got us riding, we’ve got lots of thoughts on this week’s news, as well as some discussion about how the news might get made in the future, and why it hopefully won’t be “soft.” Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for February 6, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for January 30, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will bear witness to the struggle for witnesses. It’s another week, but it’s the same old news south of the border as impeachment nears its end, or not. Up here in Canada, we’ve got drama of our own in the form of a leadership race that now has actual candidates. That’s big news to cover, and we’ll also make time to talk to a member of city council for whom CFRU is a constituent. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for January 30, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for January 23, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s the topic you’ve been wanting to hear us about since the start of the year: Guelph’s new tap-and-go transit pass card!

For the back half of the show, we’re going to have a sit down conversation with returning OSG champion, Mike Schreiner. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for January 23, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for January 16, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we don’t need to make a play for our independence since we’ve already got it! So what are we going to do with our independence? We’re going to talk to a city councillor!! Ward 6’s Dominique O’Rourke will be our guest this week, and then we will talk about the latest from Iran, and another pair trying to strike out on their own… Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for January 16, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for January 9, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back to our regularly scheduled program and what a program! As we start the new decade, we’ve got one crisis seemingly averted (for now) in the Middle East, and another crisis that’s seemingly being ignored in Australia. In matters that are not crisis-like, but still pressing, we’re going to talk about the start of the Weinstein trial, and the latest on the pipeline fight in British Columbia.

Open Sources Show Notes for January 2, 2020

It’s the beginning of year six here on Open Sources Guelph, and, as usual, the season starts with one of our recurring annual bits, the Awards Show. It started as the yearly cap stone on the old Beyond the Ballot Box show, and the work continues on this fifth edition of the OSG version as we take a step back before diving into a new political year. Once again, we will be bringing you our picks in four categories covering all the good, the bad, and the ugly that we lived through in 2019.

Open Sources Show Notes for December 26, 2019

It’s the last show of the year, and you know what that means (at least you should if you’re a fan of the show). This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s that time again for the annual movies show, as we look back at some of our favourite politically themed movies. This year, we’ve got a doc about the new class of politicians, a student council election, a slice of American political history, and a new film about social inequality.
