Curmudgeon’s Corner: Not a Round Number

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner Ivan is back, joining Sam to talk about the issues of the day. On the agenda… Russia, Russia, Russia… for some reason Russia keeps coming up when we talk about Trump. Also, the disfunction and incompetence in the Trump administration have been on display again, and they spend some time talking about the ramifications to Trump and the rest of the Republicans. And they celebrate an anniversary… sorta! Oh, yeah, and Ivan’s voice was going, so he sounds like a frog. Enjoy!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Welcome to Trumpland

Wow. What a week. On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner Sam and Ivan talk about the Inauguration of Donald Trump, the Women’s Marches all over the country, and the first week of the Trump presidency, including both the official actions that the administration has taken, and the chaos and craziness surrounding Trump himself. A lot has happened since the last show, and it has only been a week!
