Curmudgeon’s Corner: Such A Relief

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan finally get to reviewing their 2020 predictions. Because of the multi-week delay, they don’t spend the whole show on it and don’t review every prediction, but they get to the important bits. Then they get to the actual news of the current week, with segments on the GameStop nonsense, the pandemic, and goings on in Congress. Enjoy!
