Ep 551

This week on Curmudgeon's Corner, Sam and Ivan do their duty and talk about the tax bill... how the Republicans managed to get it done, how it will impact people, and what the political ramifications are. Then they put politics aside for a bit and talk about movies. All kinds of movies. From Star Wars to Dunkirk to Ninjago and others. Rounding out the show, some bits on Apple slowing down phones, Bitcoin, Ivan meeting an (acting) ambassador, an update on Puerto Rico... and more!
