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!

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 December 19, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we take one last kick at the breaking news can before the holiday break. We’ll tackle what’s going on in Canada as the Prime Minister makes the end-of-year media rounds, we’ll look at the latest from the quest to remove Trump from office, and we’ll talk to the youths about how they’re trying to help those that need the most help during the winter months.

Open Sources Show Notes for December 5, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re getting back to basics. Scotty Hertz will be back at the controls as we catch up with old friends in Ottawa, and old friends in Washington D.C., and the surprising way both those friends crossed paths this week. After that, we’ll talk to another old friend from Guelph City Council and ask about the recently wrapped up budget process at City Hall.

Open Sources Show Notes for November 14, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get to say goodbye to one of the greatest Canadians who hasn’t been too great for a long time. Oh yes, we’re going to have our say about the Don Cherry controversy, and we’re going to dig back into the swamp for a little impeachment talk. At the bottom of the hour, we’re going to get a little more serious and talk about one of the most disturbing, ongoing crimes of our times with someone who’s lived it.
