Open Sources (Ep. #316) Show Notes for March 4, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we going to go far north if only in spirit because we can’t presently leave our protective bunkers. Dr. Pierre Fogal, a certified climate change hero, will take us around 80 degrees north this week as we talk about his work and his research at the Arctic Circle. Before that, we will stick closer to home with Alberta politics, and then go far afield with the intelligence report about the high-profile murder of a journalist.

Open Sources Show Notes for December 17, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s the beginning of the end… of the pandemic. Hopefully. On this episode, we’ll talk about the politics of the vaccine roll out, and the politics of rolling back into taking climate action seriously. After that, we will talk about the man behind the tweets and the bizarre little opposite world he’s creating, and a topic you’ve long been waiting for us to tackle: hardcore pornography!

Open Sources Show Notes for September 17, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the roof is on fire, and so is everything else. Yes, we will tackle the implications of the wildfires spreading across the U.S. west coast, and we will consider the successful gambit of the returning champion Progressive Conservative Party in New Brunswick. After those two issues, we will have another remote chat with our Member of Parliament about federal concerns on the local level. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for September 17, 2020”

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 September 7, 2017”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 6, 2016

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. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 6, 2016”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 25, 2016

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.
