Curmudgeons Corner: Hither, Thither, and Yon

This week on Curmudgeon’s Corner, Sam and Ivan’s serious topics are recurring favorites… the pandemic and voter suppression laws. But of course they start out with some lighter topics… This time a discussion of things they had to read in high school many years ago, and how Sam’s old iPhone came back from the dead. Oh, and Ivan starts out by unleashing a torrent of profanities on Sam’s son Alex to chase him away. So fun for everyone!

Curmudgeon’s Corner: Cause It’s A Book

We’re here. We’re finally at the election. So of course Sam and Ivan talk about the definition of Univeral Time. Well, just for a few minutes. Then they skip the rest of the usual random stuff and just get to the politics. We know that is what you are all here for. They do a final look at the Election Graphs analysis of the polling situation. They talk about the latest attempts to make something happen with Hunter Biden. They talk about both the possibilities of Trump pulling out another win by the skin of his teeth and the possibility of a Biden landslide. Of course, they touch on voter suppression, SCOTUS, and the pandemic as well. Oh, and Ivan might be live streaming election night. So watch out for that! So here we go. The last show before election day!
