Open Sources Show Notes for November 19, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Plague, Death, War, and Spite. One of those may not be an actual Horseman, put it is a fairly succinct description of the current occupant of the White House who is letting Plague and Death run unchecked. Things aren’t much better plague-wise speaking here in Ontario, or in the rest of Canada, and that’s where War comes in. He’s got his own room in Alberta and everything!

Open Sources Show Notes for November 12, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s schadenfreude time! Sadly we can’t dedicate the whole hour to sad orange man, but we can discuss his status as a loser for at least one segment. After that, we will talk about the “Great Whole Foods Poppy Controversy of 2020” (TM), and we will talk to our local MPP about last week’s budget reveal, and the current status of fighting COVID-19 here in Ontario.

Open Sources Show Notes for November 5, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph feels like a million years. After going live-to-air on the U.S. Election Night, we’re back at our usual time slot on Thursday to talk about all the ins and outs and whatevers of the Presidential race, and all the other races in this consequential election year. For something a little less controversial, we’ll also talk to a University of Guelph researcher who has some things to say about the effects of that screen you’re looking at right now.

Open Sources Show Notes for October 29, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph is another one of those weeks where there’s almost too much news, and it’s not all related to the U.S. Presidential Election, which is definitely one of our topics for this show. Along with that, we will also talk about the four (!) elections we had in Canada this week, the continuing failures of Reconciliation in Caledonia, and labour strife in Alberta in their… healthcare sector?! Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 29, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 8, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph we will take everything we know about a busy news week, pack it in a tote, and leave it in the basement to gather dust because we’ve got a new standard for what a busy news week looks like. So Trump got COVID, and so did, it seems, most of his senior staff, which cast this week’s Vice Presidential debate  in doubt. Meanwhile in Canada, we elected a new Green leader with no problem, and we’ve got a new provincial election to talk about. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 8, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 1, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we begin October with a discussion of the most terrible show on Earth. Yes, we will dive into the sewage of the first Presidential debate for 2020, and then we will talk about some of our own issues right here in Canada with people who think they’re cops trying to arrest people on fake charges. In the realm of the real, we’ll talk to a member of city council about the always controversial library project in Guelph. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 1, 2020”

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”
