Open Sources (Ep. #413) Show Notes for February 16, 2023

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’re feeling the love. Yes, it’s two days after Valentine’s Day technically, but the love for covering hot button issues and concerning political trends burns strong. On the menu today is a variety of topics including a new conflict of interest scandal for the premier, and a new sex scandal for the Mayor of Toronto. Abroad, we will look at the latest developments around a year-long war, and the same old same old from the death cult that now runs the American legislature.

Open Sources (Ep. #401) Show Notes for November 17, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph we’re going to undermine the show we’ve put so much time and energy into. All the kids are doing self-destruction these days, whether that’s governments failing on climate action, or a certain billionaire failing with business management. We’re going to talk about that, and then we’ll talk to someone who isn’t failing, one of the new Guelph city councillors. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #401) Show Notes for November 17, 2022”

Open Sources (Ep. #374) Show Notes for April 21, 2022

This week on Open Sources Guelph, we’ve got rights! In the second half of the show we will celebrate 40 years of having rights thanks to Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and we’ll talk about that guy picture above who thinks he’s the Free Speech man with a plan. For the first half though, we’ve still got a war in Ukraine to talk about, and there are still questions about a massacre closer to home. Continue reading “Open Sources (Ep. #374) Show Notes for April 21, 2022”

Why the Red Scare in 2015?


This week on Open Sources Guelph, we will welcome Guelph Communist Party candidate Tristan Dineen. I personally have enjoyed my discussions with the Communist candidates over the years, they’re always thoughtful, engaged, passionate, and unscripted. Lately though, it’s felt like I’m in the minority. Lately, it’s seemed like we’re living in the 1950s and the Red Scare is on all over again. Continue reading “Why the Red Scare in 2015?”

Anonymous Threatens Bombshell on Baird for Tuesday


Earlier this summer, the hackitivst group Anonymous said that they had damning information about the “real reason” that former Foreign Affairs Minister John Baird resigned his seat and his cabinet position earlier this year. That was back at the end of July, and not much has been heard from Anonymous on the subject, which is weird considering that we’re more than a month into the election. Well, as they say, timing is everything, and a new communique from Anonymous early this morning promises that those revelations will be finally made public this week.

Obama Takes “Mean Tweets” With Good Humour


A U.S. President gets no shortage of criticism, but the new era of social media makes a lot of that criticism immediate, unsolicited, and uncensored. Last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live though, Barack Obama decided that turnabout is fair play by taking part in the semi-regular Kimmel bit “Mean Tweets” where the subject of the mean tweets reads them on air. At least the President has a sense of humour about it all. Continue reading “Obama Takes “Mean Tweets” With Good Humour”
