Open Sources (Ep. #340) Show Notes for August 26, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re back! Did anything happen last week while we were gone? JK. We will play catch-up this week by talking about the fall of Afghanistan and what comes next, plus the current state of COVID in Ontario and what comes next there. As for that election, we will begin our regular series of candidate interviews this week with a familiar face for both the show, and for local activism.

Open Sources (Ep. #332) Show Notes for June 24, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph it feels like summer. Yes, the House of Commons has wrapped up for the year, but have they wrapped up forever? (Yes, that was an Alice Cooper reference.) Speaking of being out forever, we will talk about the full withdrawal of U.S. troops from Afghanistan, while closer to home, we will hear from some members of our Muslim community about their everyday concerns in Canada. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #332) Show Notes for June 24, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #324) Show Notes for April 29, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we don’t have anything snappy to say. The pandemic is getting way out of control in India, and we desperately need a response. Meanwhile, in the United States, where the virus used to be out of control, the POTUS took a sort of victory lap. We’ll talk about that, and we’ll talk to a member of the provincial NDP caucus from a neighbouring riding about the Ontario angle.

Open Sources (Ep. #316) Show Notes for March 4, 2021

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we going to go far north if only in spirit because we can’t presently leave our protective bunkers. Dr. Pierre Fogal, a certified climate change hero, will take us around 80 degrees north this week as we talk about his work and his research at the Arctic Circle. Before that, we will stick closer to home with Alberta politics, and then go far afield with the intelligence report about the high-profile murder of a journalist.

Open Sources (Ep. #310) Show Notes for January 21, 2021

 

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we celebrate survival. We made it to the end of the Trump reality show presidency, and are enjoying the first full-day of the Biden era. We’ll have some thoughts about that, including a surprising Canadian connection, and we’ll also talk about how Canadian conservatives are concerned now about their own Trump connections. In the back half of the show, our special guest will be the man that leads Guelph’s police officers. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #310) Show Notes for January 21, 2021”

Open Sources (Ep. #308) Show Notes for January 7, 2021

It’s a new year here on Open Sources Guelph, our seventh year to be precise, and it feels like not much has changed from the last. We’ve still got a pandemic, and we’ve still got pandemic problems, not to mention politician problems, which wouldn’t be so bad if they were able to start ramping up vaccination. In the second half, we will talk about out lingering issues with you-know-who, and for something completely different, we’ll talk about “demolition by neglect”. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #308) Show Notes for January 7, 2021”

Open Sources Show Notes for December 17, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s the beginning of the end… of the pandemic. Hopefully. On this episode, we’ll talk about the politics of the vaccine roll out, and the politics of rolling back into taking climate action seriously. After that, we will talk about the man behind the tweets and the bizarre little opposite world he’s creating, and a topic you’ve long been waiting for us to tackle: hardcore pornography!
