Guelph Politicast

The Guelph Politicast Channel on Podbean is home to the main Guelph Politicast, as well as the podcast version of Open Sources Guelph and End Credits on CFRU.

You can also download all podcasts on the Guelph Politicast network via iTunes, Stitcher, and Google Play on whatever mobile device you listen to podcasts on.

Guelph Politicast is the original. It’s earliest form existed in the 2011 Provincial Election as a way to hear from the candidates, but it has since evolved into a weekly showcase for politicians, activists, and other people of note making a difference, or are just trying to make life in the Royal City more interesting. New episodes are posted to the Guelph Politicast channel every Wednesday.
