Ep 575

This week on Curmudgeon's Corner, Sam and Ivan's three main topics are the USA's alliances and the strains Trump is putting on them, the upcoming North Korean summit, and a hodgepodge of legal related stuff like last week's SCOTUS cases, the Obamacare lawsuit, the new Manafort charges, and the Trump legal team's letter to Mueller. Before all that though, they mark an anniversary, discuss Ivan's recent trip to China, talk about the destruction of Sam's son's iPad, and more!
