Curmudgeon’s Corner: Falling Debris

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s more serious topics are the Georgia voter law, chaos in Miami Beach, the most recent “border crisis”, and the Suez Canal blockage. But before all that, an extended discussion about destroying the moon, and the results of Ivan’s personality tests. So all kinds of fun stuff. Enjoy!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Cooking Cookies

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan have two “heavy” topics: The Atlanta massage parlor killings, and worldwide covid trends heading upward again. But on the lighter side, Sam reviews a book, and the curmudgeons discuss the dynamics of video conferences versus audio conferences. Plus a couple of bonus mini-segments on Daylight Saving Time and Sam’s email. All the usual sorts of fun things! But shorter this time! No cookies were harmed in the making of this podcast.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Garbage On My Mind

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan discuss the Biden stimulus bill that was just signed and the political implications of the bill. They also discuss the possible Manchin opening to reforming the filibuster rather than eliminating it, and what that might mean to Democratic policy options. And they discuss the one year anniversary of the WHO declaring a pandemic. But in addition to all the serious stuff, they also discuss dogs, cars, movies, and cartoons. So you’ve got all that too!

Alex 11 Year Interview

Alex turned 11 last September. Every other year he had done an interview with me on or around his birthday that I posted to YouTube, but in recent years he hadn’t actually been very cooperative or answered any questions, so I decided to skip it. Of course as soon as he found out about that, he insisted on doing one. That happened the day after his birthday, but of course I suck and didn’t get around to posting it for six months. Oops. Anyway, here is Alex talking (sort of) about turning 11. This time he is joined by his friend Kaylin. Alex made me keep the typo.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Punt This Down The Wall

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan do the six smaller topics thing again, although one of the topics is a multi-topic bundle, so you could perhaps say there were actually eight. In any case, they do talk a little bit about “serious” stuff like the Cuomo sexual harassment charges, Texas and other places lifting pandemic restrictions, and a little on Biden’s Saudi Arabia and Syria actions. But they also spend time on lighter subjects like Sam getting a new phone, a movie that means a lot to Ivan, SpaceX explosions, reactions to weather changes, and even Daft Punk. Enjoy the show!
