Curmudgeon’s Corner: Cracks in the Wall

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan talk about sexual harassment again, Senator Flake and Senator Corker’s rebellious statements, the possible scandal with the selection of Whitefish to restore electricity to Puerto Rico, and the massive churn of non-stories that seemed like they were a prelude to something big dropping… which did indeed happen… the indictment news… but only after we recorded the show. So we’ll talk about that next week…

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Slide Into That

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan go lightning mode for the whole show, just covering a wide variety of random topics. Everything from some gripes about iOS, to the viral “me too” explosion, to Trump’s ability to be empathetic, to the situation in Kurdistan, to our thoughts on a 35 year old Star Trek movie, to healthcare, to geoengineering, to variety in podcast listening… and much much more! We’re all over the place this week, so there will almost certainly be something you enjoy!
