Curmudgeon’s Corner: Linear Transfer

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s biggest topic is of course the election and its aftermath. They discuss the celebrations and relief after Biden’s win was called by the major news outlets, the huge contrasts between Biden and Trump that were obvious this week, the FUD emanating from Trumpworld, and more. The pandemic is the second area of focus, as new all-time highs are hit both worldwide and in the United States, and society struggles to respond. Before all that though, some chat about checks, Macs, dishwashers, and Alex Trebek. Enjoy!
