Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday March 29, 2018

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we download the data, which is a dangerous business these days. We will dedicate a segment to all the computer stuff going on and why it’s a danger to our privacy and our democracy, and then we will talk about the Canadian angle, and why the Federal Liberals seem to be doing nothing about it. On the back half, we talk about MPs taking action, and getting into some legal hot water over it, and we talk about whether or not high school juniors and seniors really are too young to vote.

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday February 15, 2018

Open Sources Guelph is back live and on air this week, and we’re back to deal with not just the news, but some of the biggest social shifts of our times. Here in Canada, First Nations and racism is back in the headlines as a court verdict shed a ghastly light on what the lives of our Indigenous youths may be worth. Meanwhile, talk of harassment in the political sphere put the ball back in Patrick Brown’s court, while south of the border Americans confront their president’s own apparent misogyny. As for Britain, they’ve got the evils of social media on the mind. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday November 2, 2017

Welcome to November, and can you believe it’s almost been a year since Donald Trump was first elected as President of the United States? Neither can we. It’s felt like three years! But seriously, the man himself will be one of the topics on this week’s Open Sources Guelph, as we dive into the highly consequential events this past Monday and what it means going forward. We’ll also talk about the recent attack in New York, and why it seems to be treated differently than *other* recent events, and we’ll have a sit down chat with a provincial cabinet member who is not our MPP.  Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday October 26, 2017

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re talking about unity and division. Mostly division. Right now, the United Nations is divided because of a perhaps ill-advised Goodwill Ambassadorship that has since been revoked, Quebec is divided because of the government’s latest assault against religious attire, and there’s division in Russia because that’s just the way Putin likes it. As for unity, we look to Alberta and all it’s conservatives, big and small ‘c’, who are trying to find one leader to unite them all for the next election. Continue reading

Open Sources Show Notes for Thursday July 13, 2017

This is going to be a highly controversial week on Open Sources Guelph, geo-politically speaking. Sadly, we must dip back into Trumpland this week as the race for the title of the President’s stupidest son heated up. Meanwhile, things got pretty heated in Canada as some people thought that $10.5 million was too much to pay for being tortured in a black site, and things might really get heated if North Korea gets the bomb. Back in Canada, we’ve got our fingers crossed for a juicy government grant. Continue reading

Almost two weeks after the attacks in Paris, things seem to be unraveling all the more in terms of the world’s tenuous geopolitical situation. This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ll do our small part to offer insight and analysis on these perilous circumstances, and the consequences of the ongoing war, like refugees. Meanwhile in Canada, the domestic picture is not so rosy with money issues and the return of a name whom in no small way had a huge impact on the outcome of the election. Continue reading
