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.

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?! Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 29, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 8, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph we will take everything we know about a busy news week, pack it in a tote, and leave it in the basement to gather dust because we’ve got a new standard for what a busy news week looks like. So Trump got COVID, and so did, it seems, most of his senior staff, which cast this week’s Vice Presidential debate  in doubt. Meanwhile in Canada, we elected a new Green leader with no problem, and we’ve got a new provincial election to talk about. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 8, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for October 1, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we begin October with a discussion of the most terrible show on Earth. Yes, we will dive into the sewage of the first Presidential debate for 2020, and then we will talk about some of our own issues right here in Canada with people who think they’re cops trying to arrest people on fake charges. In the realm of the real, we’ll talk to a member of city council about the always controversial library project in Guelph. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for October 1, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for August 20, 2020

This week there’s a surprising amount of news for the middle of August on Open Sources Guelph. There’s election news out of the United States, but more surprisingly, there’s election news out of Canada as one of the Atlantic provinces is going to polls. Will there be a Federal election in Canada? Not for a month thanks to some shadiness by Justin Trudeau, which might be the name of a book published by Rebel Media, which we will also talk about. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for August 20, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for August 6, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph, there are a lot of unknowns. Will there be a proper school year with COVID still a thing? Are we ignoring Canada’s growing far-right extremism and conspiracy theorists? And what about future political leaders, who is going to run alongside Joe Biden on the Democratic ticket, and who will lead the Green Party of Canada into the next election? This week, we’ll try to get some answers. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for August 6, 2020”

Open Sources Show Notes for June 11, 2020

This week on Open Sources Guelph looks very much like last week on Open Sources Guelph. We’re going to talk about the latest on the rejuvenated Civil Rights struggle against anti-Black racism and police brutality, and we’ll have the latest about the pandemic, which is still a thing that’s happening. In between, we’ll talk about the road to the White House, which will surely be bumpy no matter how big a lead the newly-minted challenger has this far out from Election Day.
