Curmudgeon’s Corner: Goodbye and Hello

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan mark the Presidential transition with one segment wrapping up the end of Trump’s presidency, and another on the beginnings of the Biden administration. Before that though, they share a few thoughts on YouTube, corporate annual review processes, family members getting the Covid vaccines, and even the MegaMillions hitting a billion dollars. Enjoy the show!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Fully Half

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan continue blowing off the 2020 review in favor of discussing breaking news events. Trump is kicked off social media. The second impeachment. More on the insurrection at the Capitol. Security precautions for the upcoming inauguration. It has been another busy week. Maybe things will slow down once Biden is President? We’ll find out soon enough. In the mean time, another busy show.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Attack on the Capitol

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan throw the previous plan out the window, and spend the entire show talking about the January 6th attack on the Capitol and all the ramifications of that attack. There really was no other possible topic this week. They’ll circle back around and do the review of their 2020 predictions some other time.
