Curmudgeon’s Corner: Hiding the Children

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s main topics are Trump’s appointments so far, his call with the President of Taiwan, and the Pizzagate gunman incident. Aside from those, they talk a little about Sam’s “day of smells” and an issue with a computer monitor. Ivan’s brain exploded after talking about Pizzagate though, so no lightning round this week. Also, we recorded before the latest on Russia election interference, so maybe next week on that! :-)
