[Ep 791] Point the Arrow [2:18:37]
Recorded: Fri, 2022-Aug-05 UTC
Published: Sun, 2022-Aug-07 06:41 UTC

This week on Curmudgeon's Corner, Sam and Ivan's biggest topic is Election 2022, including Sam's wife Brandy winning her primary, other primary results, the Kansas abortion result, and all the factors that could be impacting the general elections in November. But of course there is more too. They talk Pelosi in Taiwan, Alex Jones, a stolen laptop, mourning the loss of email as way people did long form person to person communication, and even more. And a good time was had by all!
