Curmudgeon’s Corner: Attack of the Special Editions

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan recorded an entire show talking about Election 2020, including the Presidential debate, Trump’s taxes, and a bunch of other things. The also talked about a movie and thanked the patrons for paying for a new microphone. Fun stuff like that. Then Donald Trump tested positive for Covid. So they went back and recorded a whole extra special segment on that new development. Then after that Trump went to the hospital. Sigh. Things are happening too quickly! Anyway, enjoy the show!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Talking is Hard

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan try to keep things pithy and concise by having only two topics but fail utterly and completely as they go in-depth into the latest Trump nonsense as well as the latest pandemic related developments. Plus Ivan tells us about his light summer reading! So there you go.
