Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 19, 2017

It’s time for another week of fun and adventure here on Open Sources Guelph, and by “fun” and “adventure”, we mean concern and insanity. Back in the U.S., the president decided that he’s had enough of international diplomacy no matter how well it’s working. Meanwhile, in Calgary, the voters there have decided that they like their current municipal leadership just fine, thank you. But there is cause for concern. For instance, might Canada be primed for its own big short? And what about your Halloween costume, is it politically correct enough?  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 5, 2017

This calls for a celebration! That seems to be the news this week on Open Sources Guelph, because, as they say, every dark cloud has a silver lining. That dark cloud includes some violence in Spain over a vote of independence by one of the regions there, and the pitiful reaction of the U.S. government to recovery efforts in Puerto Rico. The silver lining? How about the fact that a federal party elected a visible minority as its new leader? Or the fact that the electoral reform fight is far from over?  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 31, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we laboured to make our pre-Labour show Trump-free, but the man can’t let a week go by without blowing the doors off another political norm, and last Friday he broke about 12 even as a hurricane was bearing down on the U.S. We’ll have to discuss Trump’s latest move to undermine common decency, but we’ll also talk about the new faces (and positions) in the federal cabinet, and the new routes and schedules for Guelph Transit with the man who runs that service.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 17, 2017

So what did you do last weekend? Chances are you neither stood for, or against, Nazism and white supremacy, but on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph, we will look at someplace that’s change the face, or perhaps revealed the face, of modern America this past Saturday in Virginia. We will dedicate some overtime to that subject this week, and then we will talk about why it’s hard out there to be Conservative in Ontario right now, and what an east coast newspaper’s going to do now that a very long-term strike is over.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 27, 2017

The people have waited long enough, and it is time again for another episode of Open Sources Guelph. On this week’s show, we’ll talk about the man who loves to talk, and talk, and talk, while digging himself into deeper, and deeper, and deeper holes. After that, we’ll look at what’s going on here in Canada. In Alberta, the unification of the right is going about as well as to be expected, Sears employees are mad as hell but there’s not much they can do about it, and there’s a Facebook page with “proud” in the title that might make you feel less proud if you read it.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 13, 2017

This is going to be a highly controversial week on Open Sources Guelph, geo-politically speaking. Sadly, we must dip back into Trumpland this week as the race for the title of the President’s stupidest son heated up. Meanwhile, things got pretty heated in Canada as some people thought that $10.5 million was too much to pay for being tortured in a black site, and things might really get heated if North Korea gets the bomb. Back in Canada, we’ve got our fingers crossed for a juicy government grant. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday June 8, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph we go around the world! Not literally, of course, and mostly in North America and the U.K., but what we’re saying is that there are world wide implications. From someone that might be the Prime Minister of Canada if he can get his party’s leadership, to a contest to determine who the leader of the United Kingdom will be, to a guy once called the “Leader of the Free World” but seems not even remotely interested in being a leader in his own house. Politics, elections, the environment and terror are all on the docket for this week’s show.  Continue reading
