Curmudgeon’s Corner: Very Cool

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner Sam and Ivan go a little light and fluffy, mostly avoiding the serious topics, instead talking about the helicopter on mars, some other space stuff, a bit on internet scams and the effectiveness of paper junk mail, and even some talk about the new Apple stuff that was announced a few days ago. Oh. And the pandemic. They did talk about the pandemic. Less light and fluffy. Couldn’t avoid it. But still a less news heavy show than usual. Also important, this week’s episode was sponsored! By ALeXMXeLA.com! Yeah. So there ya go.

Curmudgeons Corner: Hither, Thither, and Yon

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s serious topics are recurring favorites… the pandemic and voter suppression laws. But of course they start out with some lighter topics… This time a discussion of things they had to read in high school many years ago, and how Sam’s old iPhone came back from the dead. Oh, and Ivan starts out by unleashing a torrent of profanities on Sam’s son Alex to chase him away. So fun for everyone!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Crossover

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan talk about the pandemic and Matt Gaetz. Because of course they do. But also an initial discussion on how lame April Fool’s Day is goes far afield into a discussion of 1970s calculators. And feedback on the Atlanta killer’s religious beliefs leads to a wider ranging discussion of proscriptive and toxic cultures that feed into questions of privilege. They also talk a bit about a couple things they do not talk about. Whatever that means. And Alex promotes the Curmudgeon’s Corner crossover episode on his ALeXMXeLA.com YouTube channel. There are bloopers at the end too! You can enjoy all of this… as long as you can get past the first 90 seconds or so of chicken noises. Yeah. Sorry bout that.
