Ep 822

This week on Curmudgeon's Corner Ivan is out, so Sam, joined by his son Alex, talks about slow news weeks, and what hides behind them. And since it is indeed a slow news week there is talk of cleaning, dogs, books, and movies. And Sam "anchors" this in the right week, but recorded that little bit on his phone, which sounds awful. You'll all ignore that and pretend it was fine, right?
