Open Sources (Ep. #414) Show Notes for February 23, 2023

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we go back into the shadows. In the realm of extremism and conspiracy theories it was a rough week because one year after the Freedom Convoy it turns out that the government was right to use the Emergencies Act after all. That’s okay though, because we’re found the real cause of all our problems, and you will never guess what it is! For the interview, we’re talking to a local city councillor about more down-to-Earth issues. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #414) Show Notes for February 23, 2023”

Open Sources (Ep. #311) Show Notes for January 28, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re all about the outrages and there are so many. In Canada, we’ve got a disgraced Governor General who’s been thoroughly disavowed, in the U.S. (and elsewhere) there’s an army of deflated conspiracy theorists that don’t understand why the plan fell apart, and Canadian companies might be unknowingly (or knowingly) benefiting from slave labour. Just another week in 2021. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #311) Show Notes for January 28, 2021”

Open Sources Show Notes for September 3, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, there’s no rest for the wicked before this Labour Day weekend. We’re going to head back to the United States where the intersection of racism and police brutality is busy again thanks in no small part to the disinterest of the man in the White House. We’re also going to talk about the concerning conspiracy sharing of a sitting MP, and we’ll talk to an expert in how we think about why it feels like QAnon is winning (and how we can reverse the effects).

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got protests. In Lebanon, people are protesting the incompetency and corruption of their government that lead to disaster.

And speaking of Free Speech, yes, we have to talk again about conspiracies. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for July 30, 2020”
