Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 31, 2019

Happy Halloween! We’ve got the scariest punditry you could ever imagine on this week’s edition of Open Sources Guelph. There’s danger and intrigue as the Federal leaders gather their thoughts after the election, there’s a bottomless well of horrors being revealed in Washington as the investigation into Trump goes deeper, and then there’s the most ghastly of all creatures, a smiling Doug Ford telling you he wants to be your friend. [Inset evil laugh.] Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 31, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 26, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we fly the orange flag of welcome for local NDP candidate Aisha Jahangir, the latest candidate to join us for our 2019 series of interview for this Federal Election, but that’s just half the show. For the second half we’re going to look out further at the national campaign, and then take in all the latest drama south of the border, which this week has been more substantial than usual.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 19, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re going to really get into the election issues, and for a change it’s not going to involve punditry. This week, we’re going to start our candidate interviews with two back-to-back contenders in the form of Communist Party candidate Juanita Burnett, and then we’re going to talk about other controversies with the election.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 12, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re just really eager to get this election started, Justin! (He might be listening.) So we’ll kick off this week’s episode with an election preview, and then we’ll get into the week’s news, which is also, for the most part, about elections. We’ll discuss the increased security for a Federal cabinet minister because of online threats, the results of the Manitoba election, and some more of the U.S. President’s patented Kool-Aid Man diplomacy.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday September 12, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 29, 2019

 

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we wind down the summer with a relaxing look at the schizophrenic diplomatic situation around the world. Seriously, the global political order is not coming apart at the seams, it just feels like it. Anyway, we’ll talk about that ball of zany that sums up the lost weekend at the France hosted G7, and we’ll look at the seriously explosive situation in Kashmir. Closer to home, we’ll look at the past politics of the Federal Conservative leader, and whether there’s a possibility that a more rational Republican might unseat the standard-bearer in 2020. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 29, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 15, 2019

We’re back! After a surprisingly brief two-week vacation, Open Sources Guelph is back on the air with an all-new episode, and we’re ready to hang with you through to this fall’s Federal Election and beyond. That will be our first topic on our first episode back as we look at the moves of the federal party leaders ahead of the writ. We’ll also talk about the mysterious end of a high-profile sexual predator, the seriousness of provincial separation (in the west end), and the latest from the tension-filled situation in Hong Kong. Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday August 15, 2019”

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 25, 2019

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re wondering if anyone’s going on summer vacation. In Ottawa, the news keeps coming even as we’re counting down to a fall election. In the United States, the special counsel is back in the news despite his best efforts. In the U.K. there’s a new sheriff in town, and he’s going to make people do what he wants on Brexit (apparently). And finally, not to disturb your calm, but the rent is pretty damn expensive here in Canada, and we have the data to prove it now.  Continue reading “Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 25, 2019”
