Curmudgeon’s Corner: Exodus

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner Sam and Ivan talk about the Las Vegas massacre, the Catalonian independence referendum, and the ongoing drama within the Trump administration… with this week’s highlight of course being Tillerson calling Trump a moron. Before all of those topics though, updates from Ivan on the recovery from the recent natural disasters in both Mexico City and Puerto Rico.
