Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 7, 2017

Scotty Hertz will be taking some much needed vacation time for the next couple of weeks, which leaves Adam to wonder, “When did Open Sources Guelph add vacation time for staff?” Joking aside, the show, as they say, must go on. And for this week Adam will not fly solo by filling Scotty’s shoes with a pair of special guests, one person to talk about civic matters, and another to talk about science matters.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday January 5, 2017

mikeandandy

We’re back! Well technically, we never went anywhere. There have been new episodes of Open Sources Guelph during the holidays over the last two weeks, but they we’re “canned,” that is to say “pre-recorded.” But we’re back!!! Well, Adam’s back, at least. Scotty had some minor dental surgery this week, so he can’t talk, or maybe he shouldn’t talk. It’s definitely one of the two. Anyway, so it’s the first week of January, we’re back with the live shows, and it’s time to get back to the business of acquainting you with your local politicians. And we’re starting 2017 with the even numbered wards… Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday December 8, 2016

We are a few weeks away from Christmas (and so is everyone else), and here on Open Sources Guelph, we got an early Christmas present. In Alberta, a conservative firebrand was up to his old tricks, getting the scorching rabble all fired about the current premier of Alberta in some very unexpected ways. This story will break up nicely our Royal City focus this week, first as we mark the passing of another political year in Guelph, and then we’ll have a conversation with one of the councillors that represents Open Sources HQ on the University of Guelph campus.

Get Your Questions Ready for #AskMayorCam Part 2!

Last year, Open Sources Guelph hosted Guelph Mayor Cam Guthrie for a full-hour of discussion after only just six months since his 2014 election to head of the Royal City’s government. It was a tremendous success, and it was thanks i to you, our beloved audience, who gave us such great questions to ask the mayor live on air. So in the grand Hollywood tradition of doing things so right the first time that we have to do it again for a second, get ready for #AskMayorCam Part 2: Electric Boogaloo! Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 10, 2016

It’s a mad house! A mad house! How many you felt like George Taylor realizing that he was on Earth along after experiencing the ascension of Donald Trump to the presidency this week? Open Sources Guelph does. We may not be on the Planet of the Apes, but you’d have a tough time convincing us that we’re not on a planet of deplorables. We will talk for the last time about the 2016 U.S. Presidential Election before starting the countdown to the first days of the Trump presidency, and then we’ll consider more local matters with out latest guest from city council, and he’ll tell us what he thinks of Trump (just kidding).

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 14, 2016

For the umpteenth time in the year-and-a-half history of Open Sources Guelph, we’ll tackle another American shooting tragedy driven by racial politics. If we could have a few less of those, that would be great, but as long as it keeps happening, we’ll keep talking about them. Meanwhile, across the pond, the British government is still dealing with tragedies past, and the bitter ghosts of the Iraq War have been dredged up again. So with all that seriousness, after a much needed break, we hope that City Councillor Mark MacKinnon will be able to lighten things up with a pointed conversation about municipal matters (with laughs… Hopefully).
