Open Sources (Ep. #337) Show Notes for July 29, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we wonder about going too far. In Toronto, if could be argued that they definitely went too far “helping” homeless people get out of the park, and some people will say that it could be going too far to demand vaccine mandates. Some people are also saying that our city’s mayor has gone too far, and we’ll ask him about that and other stuff as we joins us for this week’s show.

Open Sources (Ep. #335) Show Notes for July 15, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to science the sh!t out of this episode, at least in the first half of the show. We’re going to discuss balancing space exploration with paying ones taxes, and we’re going to talk about the latest issues around the vaccine rollout here and around the world. In the back half, we’ve got a visitor from city council to talk about what’s going on locally at city hall. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #335) Show Notes for July 15, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #330) Show Notes for June 10, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we tackle complexity. Even though everybody apparently agrees that we need more action on Indigenous issues, there hasn’t been much, and then we will have a personal health moment to talk about all our vaccine options. Then, we fill focus on simpler things, like the friction between the government and teachers, with the head of one of the province’s four teachers’ unions.

Open Sources (Ep. #320) Show Notes for April 1, 2021

The original April Fools are back this week with another episode of Open Sources Guelph. We would love to spend the hour making jokes and pulling pranks, but there’s some serious stuff to talk about. We will look at the ever changing pandemic response provincially, and the growing trend of Anti-Asian hate that’s even affected our community. After the break, it’s back to the patio with another Guelph city councillor. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #320) Show Notes for April 1, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #318) Show Notes for March 18, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we skip over the luck of the Irish and get right to the anger of the Scots, and there’s a lot to be angry about. From a COVID conspiracy shindig in our town to a mega-media merger that’s unlikely to help anyone with access or pricing, we will make our outrage known. After that, we will turn to Guelph MP Lloyd Longfield, who will hopefully help bring the temperature down. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #318) Show Notes for March 18, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #317) Show Notes for March 11, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re in a mood to celebrate, or we would be if the special occasion in question was something other than the start of a global pandemic. On this paper anniversary of the COVID-19 lockdown, we will talk about the politics of vaccines, and the racial politics of being royal. And in terms of local politics, we will talk about the surprisingly bitter politics of patios.

Open Sources (Ep. #312) Show Notes for February 4, 2021

This week’s Open Sources Guelph has a lot of ground to cover, which is weird because there’s not much we can do about foreign travel with new Federal government restrictions. So we’re not going anywhere, but we will be talking about the coup in Myanmar along with those new travel restrictions. In the back half, our featured guest will be the former environmental commissioner who’s got a tough appraisal of the green record of the provincial government.
