For the 300th episode of the Guelph Politicast, there were some grand plans afoot. How about a live show?! With special guests!! Each one more surprising than the last! But who would you invite? How live can you be in the nth stage of a global pandemic? What’s the difference between a virtual event and just another Zoom meeting anyway? Well then, forget it! For episode #300, Guelph Politico turns the microphone on itself!
As you may or may not be aware, Guelph Politico started as the “Guelph By-Election Blog ’08” in the summer of 2008 when there was a Federal by-election and a lot of special (political) guests coming to Guelph. A six-week campaign, became a 12-week campaign when a full general election was called on the last day of campaigning, and the rest, as they say, is history. Thirteen years later, we’re now up to the 300th episode of the podcast.
To play a little “This is Your Life” (ask your grandparents), we’re joined by Open Sources Guelph co-host Scotty Hertz for this week’s show. In fact, Scotty is technically this week’s host asking all the tough questions about the humble origins of Politico, it’s naturally random evolution over the years, the fate of local media over the last decade, the challenges of covering Guelph, and the dream guest who might appear sometime in the podcast’s future.
So let’s talk about the Guelph Politicast on this week’s Guelph Politicast!
