Curmudgeon’s Corner: Acceptable to the Leg

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan do an all lightning round show. Twelve separate exciting subjects. These include… the newest Brexit developments, the Trump vs Acosta ruckus, the resistance to Pelosi as speaker, Trump’s eventful visit to Europe, a book review by Sam, the Lion Air crash… and six more things. You didn’t think they would all be in the summary did you? But they are all exciting. Really.
