Curmudgeon’s Corner: This Bopping

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan talk about, well, yes, the pandemic again. But this time they at least organize it into a few segments. Namely, the current state of the pandemic itself, the stimulus package passed by Congress, and the politics of the pandemic. And before that, they do talk just a little bit about Ivan’s new Playstation, and Sam’s new kidney stone. So yay!
