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. #371) Show Notes for March 31, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, slap coverage will be kept to a minimum, unless, of course, the topic of a very immature social media post from the Alberta Premier comes up. Jason Kenney is among our topics of conversation this week, and we will also, obviously, talk about the latest war news from Ukraine. Closer to home, one of CFRU’s city councillors will join us to talk about plans of the official variety. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #371) Show Notes for March 31, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #364) Show Notes for February 10, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re relieved to longer hear the honking of the horns. Not that we really heard them, but the thought of it kept us up all night. You know what else is keeping us up? How about the thought of a bilateral meeting with Pierre Poilievre and Boris Johnson? We will talk about those two in the first half of the show, and in the second half we’ll talk Guelph business with the man from the (Ward) 6ix. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #364) Show Notes for February 10, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #362) Show Notes for January 27, 2022

Open Sources (Ep. #356) Show Notes for December 16, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re concerned with a matter of mayors. In our interview segment this week, we will talk to Guelph’s Mayor for a year-end chat, and before that we will talk about the passing of another mayor, one of Toronto’s most historic and colourful. Before that, we will cover a little philosophical ground by asking if the time has come for Canada to seek a trial separation from the U.S. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #356) Show Notes for December 16, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #355) Show Notes for December 9, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re getting serious. Once again, December 6 was marked by the nation, but are we doing enough to think about gender-based violence everyday? Can we really get China to start changing course by refusing to play winter sports with them? And, because we’re also locally sourced, we will take a look at the ledgers at City Hall with someone who knows them very well. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #355) Show Notes for December 9, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #354) Show Notes for December 2, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re taking a dive into the deep end. We’ve got a new COVID variant and a lot of unanswered questions, and with that sad news, we’re also seeing a new wave of COVID skepticism and conspiracy-making, and it’s unfortunately coming from Canada’s Queen (?). Also, we will talk to some Guelph royalty, the Ward 2 city councillor and local rock star whose got some important issues to discuss.
