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”.

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!

Open Sources Show Notes for November 26, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph will formally start our transition to getting through these last few episodes before our Christmas break and the end of 2020. Still, it’s been another busy seven days in the news business, and we will spend our hour catching up with the Biden transition, and the creeping of conspiracy theories in Canada. Staying in Canada, we will also talk about the back end problems with the CERB, and how housing is still an issue despite the pandemic.

Open Sources Show Notes for November 19, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Plague, Death, War, and Spite. One of those may not be an actual Horseman, put it is a fairly succinct description of the current occupant of the White House who is letting Plague and Death run unchecked. Things aren’t much better plague-wise speaking here in Ontario, or in the rest of Canada, and that’s where War comes in. He’s got his own room in Alberta and everything!

Open Sources Show Notes for November 12, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, it’s schadenfreude time! Sadly we can’t dedicate the whole hour to sad orange man, but we can discuss his status as a loser for at least one segment. After that, we will talk about the “Great Whole Foods Poppy Controversy of 2020” (TM), and we will talk to our local MPP about last week’s budget reveal, and the current status of fighting COVID-19 here in Ontario. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for November 12, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for November 5, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph feels like a million years. After going live-to-air on the U.S. Election Night, we’re back at our usual time slot on Thursday to talk about all the ins and outs and whatevers of the Presidential race, and all the other races in this consequential election year. For something a little less controversial, we’ll also talk to a University of Guelph researcher who has some things to say about the effects of that screen you’re looking at right now. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for November 5, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 29, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph is another one of those weeks where there’s almost too much news, and it’s not all related to the U.S. Presidential Election, which is definitely one of our topics for this show. Along with that, we will also talk about the four (!) elections we had in Canada this week, the continuing failures of Reconciliation in Caledonia, and labour strife in Alberta in their… healthcare sector?!
