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

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 6, 2016

climate_change

On this Thursday before Thanksgiving, Open Sources Guelph is going to stuff you silly with all the latest topical discussion, and what else says “holiday weekend” like a stunning nation-wide debate on a response to an issue global importance that boils the entire situation down to dollars and cents? An argument between various members of the same party accusing one and other who’s more elitist, that’s what! On the flip side, we’ll talk about why no one’s really talking about third party candidates for president in the U.S. and then we’ll discuss why a slim majority of Colombians decided to not give peace a chance this week.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 25, 2016

chronicle_strike

We wind down the summer here on Open Sources Guelph with more of our patented political discussion about hot button issues of the day. For instance, is Donald Trump now actually *trying* to run for president? He hasn’t said anything grotesque this week, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to talk about. And just because the House is in recess, it doesn’t mean that Canada’s federal politicians aren’t making news, even if they wish they weren’t. In media matters, we’ll look at the never-ending newspaper strike on the east coast, and wonder where all the reporters are in the deep south. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday May 12, 2016

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we tackle three tough issues with no easy answer, and one easy topic that’s tough to wrap your head around. The latter refers to the unexpected outcome of the American presidential primary, one half of which was firmly resolved last week with the reality TV star clinching the win. The other three topics cover international finance, the growing spectre of environmental catastrophe (and whether it’s right to politicize that), and the public transit system in the Royal City.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 3, 2015

In the shadow of several gunmen, and an all-important worldwide conference to take on what maybe the greatest pending disaster in human history, Open Sources Guelph kicks off this week with a talk about medical marijuana. It’s a serious issue, perhaps not as serious as the other two, but important consider that as the Federal government looks to legalize pot, an entire industry now sits in a kind of legal no man’s land: waiting for legalization, but still, for the moment, illegal. A special guest will help us out with these implications, and then we’ll talk about the week’s big issues. Continue reading
