Curmudgeon’s Corner: Where It’s Supposed To Be

On this week’s Curmudgeon’s Corner, first Ed joins Sam for a lightning round. They of course cover the latest Mueller developments, but also tax refunds, Venezuela, some books Ed read, and more. Then for the last part of the show, Sam is joined by his wife Brandy, who is attending the Power Rising conference and talks about her experiences there, including hearing from Stacey Abrams and Kamala Harris.
