Curmudgeon’s Corner: Three Brown Sheep

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Brandy joins Sam, and they get a bit carried away with an almost three-hour show. Oops. Maybe consider it three separate shows and take it in bits. First, they talk about the latest Turkey/Syria developments. Second, a review of this week’s Trump scandal news. And finally, a review of the Democratic primary race in the wake of the fourth debate.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Furrowing His Brows

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner: Sam and Ivan talk about the things you know they would talk about. Almost all of the show is on the latest crimes and misdemeanors… and the corresponding developments with the impeachment process. They do manage to get a few minutes in on some random tech things as well to balance it off. But really, it is mostly Trump scandals again.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Ultra Speed Again

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, there really wasn’t much choice about what Sam and Ivan would talk about.

Could it really have been about anything else?
