Open Sources (Ep. #376) Show Notes for May 5, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we get to finally unleash our pent up election frustration. The Ontario campaign is finally underway, and we will talk about the stakes before we get a chance to talk to the candidates. We will also, for obvious reasons, have an update about the war in Ukraine. In the back half of the show, a Guelph city councillor might be making his final appearance as a Friend of OSG.

Open Sources (Ep. #375) Show Notes for April 28, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re anxious. It’s like, when are we going to get to the fireworks factory Ontario Election?! That’s going to be one of our topics this week, and we will also talk about the “OK Groomer” push on the far-right, and we’ll have the latest from Ukraine. Interview? We’ve got one of those too, and this week we sit down with a Federal cabinet minister. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #375) Show Notes for April 28, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #366) Show Notes for February 24, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re in search of peace. There’s some of that in Ottawa now, but it’s by no means a guarantee that it’s going to last, which is why we’re dedicating the first half to the show to the Freedom Convoy fallout. Elsewhere, we’re looking at Schrödinger’s war in Ukraine, plus the unofficial kick-off of the 2022 Ontario Provincial Election (though it’s really just the start of the new legislative session).

Open Sources (Ep. #365) Show Notes for February 17, 2022

This week, Open Sources Guelph is going back to the convoy. Brace yourselves. A lot has changed since we last talked about the politics of these anti-mandate protests, and all levels of government have given us a lot to chew on these last few days. So there’s that, plus we will talk about the hate and scorn cast against the Canadian media. For the second half of the show, Mike Schreiner’s back just as you knew he would be. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #365) Show Notes for February 17, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #361) Show Notes for January 20, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s a “Blue Thursday” and we will tackle all kinds of issues making the rounds in what might be the saddest week of the year.

In the back half of the show, we will cover some sports news (?), and then we will take a frightening look at the immediate future. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #361) Show Notes for January 20, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #359) Show Notes for January 6, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back after a holiday break. Did we miss anything? I know, we’ll tell you. Let’s see, we took a sudden U-turn back to lockdown this week in Ontario, but we did make some some progress on Truth and Reconciliation. On the other hand, it’s the first anniversary of that time a bunch of people tried to overthrow America for a game show host, and has anyone heard from Putin lately? Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #359) Show Notes for January 6, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #349) Show Notes for October 28, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, the times they are a-changin’. We have a new cabinet for the Federal government, and there were actually a few surprises. We will also talk about how things never really seem to change at the Provincial level, at least on battling COVID. In the back half of the show, we will talk to a Guelph city councillor, who will be looking over a new kind of City of Guelph budget next month.
