Curmudgeon’s Corner: The Rollercoaster

The election is over, and Sam and Ivan are here on Curmudgeon’s Corner to discuss how things turned out. You’ll hear their thoughts on the overall results, problems with polling, how things went in Florida and Georgia, the Senate results, how Trump is reacting, and much more. They have to toss in a few other things even on a big politics week, so Ivan talks about a random technological observation from the 1990s in Argentina, Sam notes a major milestone for the show, and of course, they can’t go a week without at least some pandemic talk. As an extra bonus, after the show proper, you can listen to a condensed version of the Curmudgeon’s Corner election night live stream. Enjoy!
