Curmudgeon’s Corner: Tell Me Something New

Ed joins Sam on this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner. Ed educates Sam on the new “Right to Try” law. They discuss if Trump actually has malicious motivations or actually believes he is doing positive things, specifically with regard to how he is handling relations with America’s allies. And finally, they talk about how a complicated story like the Trump/Russia investigation just leaves people confused and tired, while constant repetition of “witch hunt!” is a simple clear message that penetrates to those who are inclined to believe it. Yet another full show!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Bubbles of Exasperation

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s three main topics are the USA’s alliances and the strains Trump is putting on them, the upcoming North Korean summit, and a hodgepodge of legal related stuff like last week’s SCOTUS cases, the Obamacare lawsuit, the new Manafort charges, and the Trump legal team’s letter to Mueller. Before all that though, they mark an anniversary, discuss Ivan’s recent trip to China, talk about the destruction of Sam’s son’s iPad, and more!
