Curmudgeon’s Corner: The Russia Trump Show

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner… well… Trump and Russia again. We had no choice! It just keeps coming up! In any case, we also talk about the “deconstruction of the administrative state” as a goal of the Trump presidency on the politics side. But we take non-political detours into cleanliness and tidiness, Windows 10, Elon Musk’s Moon plans, and cord cutting too. So a nice well rounded show!
