Curmudgeon’s Corner: Slower than the Rise

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner Sam and Ivan again spend most of the show on pandemic related developments. But before that, they discuss buying a MacBook Air, and a movie Sam watched about a couple of frogs. After exhausting the pandemic topic, they talk a little bit about Election 2020 polling.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Like a Snowflake

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan discuss Sanders dropping out of the presidential race, sexual assault allegations against Biden, and possible positive developments on the pandemic front. But first, a little about cooking, cleaning, and Ewoks. And somewhere along the way, just a bit about a new use of computer image recognition that will undoubtedly take over the world.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Wide and Foolish

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan try to get their minds off all the bad news by taking a stupid internet quiz and talking about the results. But then they do get down to the pandemic. No detailed updates of this week’s badness though. Instead, they spend a while talking about some counterfactual scenarios on how this might have played out under a different president. Then they talk about the psychological toll this is taking on the whole world, and how it will end up defining a generation.
