Curmudgeon’s Corner: Usually Just Cheese

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan talk about feedback to the show, Gerrymandering, Brexit, and Hurricane Dorian first. The hurricane transitions naturally into Sharpiegate, and from there to more generalized Trump corruption, which of course leads to the expansion of the investigations being done by the House Democrats. And that’s a show!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Rules be Damned

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner Sam is joined by guest hosts Ed and Darryl. They of course talk about the Manafort and Gates indictment, the Papadopoulos guilty plea, and the ramifications of all that to the Mueller investigation.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Two Humps

On Curmudgeon’s Corner this week guest cohost Ed joins Sam to discuss Hurricane Harvey, the pardon of Sheriff Joe, Schneiderman teaming up with Mueller, gerrymandering, and partisan sorting as their bigger topics. But they also touch on Sam wearing a suit for the first time in over a decade, the speakers at the event he went to, and the possibility of just paying Democrats to move to red states.
