Curmudgeon’s Corner: Complacency Factor

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan start the show with a special reaction to the news of Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s death recorded right after the news broke on Friday. Then you get the show that was already in the can before that upended everything. In that show from the before times, they talked about Election 2020 and the pandemic, fantasized a bit about vacations once the pandemic recedes, and Sam plugged a live stream.

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Can’t handle the fact

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, the show was recorded before the attack in Nice, Trump’s final VP pick, and the attempted coup in Turkey. So there will be nothing about those things! But Sam and Ivan do of course talk quite a bit about Election 2016 anyway. The other major topic is racial tensions in the wake of the Philandro Castile and Dallas shootings. The show is rounded out with shorter discussions of hard drive failures, summer camp, the UK prime minister… and Pokemon Go!
