Open Sources (Ep. #410) Show Notes for January 19, 2023

This week on Open Sources Guelph it’s Blue Thursday, the saddest Thursday of the week. To celebrate, we’re going to talk about the Code Blue in our healthcare system that Ontario’s inglorious premier thinks he’s solved, and then we’re going to talk about some issues around Toronto’s men and women in blue, the members of its police service. But it’s not all depressing because we’ve brought in an old friend to talk about all the math city council will be doing next week!

Open Sources (Ep. #408) Show Notes for January 5, 2023

This week on Open Sources Guelph we’re back at work! That was a nice holiday break but the news doesn’t stop, even though we do (for a time). So on this show, we’re catching up with the crazy politics of the United States, which did not take a holiday break, and we will catch up with the War in Ukraine because there was no holiday break there either. For the interview this week, we will finish up our round of interviews with the new city councillors by chatting with the new guy representing Ward 6.

Open Sources (Ep. #404) Show Notes for December 8, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph. we’re coming home for Christmas (at least so far as the news is concerned).

Open Sources (Ep. #403) Show Notes for December 1, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we catch up with old friends. Dinner with friends has gotten the former U.S. President into trouble again, and being a little too quick with the proverbial hickory stick has made a lot of people in China mad at their president-for-life. Guess we’ll just have to make some new friends, and that’s what we do this week as we interview another one of Guelph’s new councillors. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #403) Show Notes for December 1, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #402) Show Notes for November 24, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to play the beautiful game: Amateur political punditry! In that context, we’re also going to talk about all the issues around that other game being played on the world stage this week, and we’re also going to talk about the national stage and the latest moves at a certain inquiry, plus the local stage with another new city councillor who’ll talk about a very big first meeting. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #402) Show Notes for November 24, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #401) Show Notes for November 17, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph we’re going to undermine the show we’ve put so much time and energy into. All the kids are doing self-destruction these days, whether that’s governments failing on climate action, or a certain billionaire failing with business management. We’re going to talk about that, and then we’ll talk to someone who isn’t failing, one of the new Guelph city councillors. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #401) Show Notes for November 17, 2022”
