Curmudgeon’s Corner: Failing to Predict the Past

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s big topics are the gun control debate and the apparent Trump campaign implosion. Other topics are kid’s summer activities, Brexit (recorded before the vote), and the process of choosing Presidential Electors. For a change of pace, Sam wraps it up with interviews of several delegates to the 2016 Washington State Democratic Convention.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Interviews with Republicans

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner podcast we do something different. Sam interviews Bruce, Michael, Matt, and Kelly… all people who participated in this year’s Republican primary process. He gets their thoughts on this year’s field, the candidates they supported, and what they think about things now that Donald Trump is the presumptive nominee. New perspectives beyond what we usually hear from Sam and Ivan!
