Curmudgeon’s Corner: Another Coffee Boy

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s main topics are of course the mid-term election results, and the replacement of Sessions with Whitaker. Before that, a little on this year’s new iPhones, and Sam finally catches up on the movies he’s seen lately.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: An Appointment in the Future

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Ivan and Sam’s two big topics are the synagogue shooting in Pittsburgh including all the surrounding issues relating to the climate that leads to such things, and their final pre-election thoughts on the 2018 midterms. But as usual, there are smaller topics to round things out, including thoughts on a movie, a book, a new iPhone, the economy, and even Gary Hart. Also, after you listen… go vote!
