Curmudgeon’s Corner: Usually Just Cheese

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan talk about feedback to the show, Gerrymandering, Brexit, and Hurricane Dorian first. The hurricane transitions naturally into Sharpiegate, and from there to more generalized Trump corruption, which of course leads to the expansion of the investigations being done by the House Democrats. And that’s a show!
