This Year’s Passover Episode…

Tags: , , , , ,

Hi! We’ve been away for a long while.  Why is that? You’ll just have to listen to find out…

We’re in the midst of the Jewish holiday of Passover — a holiday of springtime, slavery, freedom, multimedia events and education. And, of course, of eating matzah. And, for some, quinoa.

Join us for more details as to how one of our co-hosts has observed Passover in the past — and how it’s going down this year!

Fooling People on the Internet, or the “Catfish”

Tags: , , , ,

Besides being a Southern staple, a catfish is the new slang for people who misrepresent themselves on the Internet.

Wait.

How do you know we are who we say we are?!

OMG. How do WE know we are who we say we are?

Don’t worry, we are. Mostly.

This week, we discuss the “catfish” in sheep’s clothing.

The Christmas Episode! {LISTEN}

Tags: , , , , , , , ,

We wish you a Merry Christmas / we wish you a Merry Christmas / we wish you a Merry Christmas and a …  wait, whaaaat?

Yes.  Christmas.  I’m Jewish, she’s Muslim. And this is a Christmas episode. Why? Just because. :)

We do, however, talk about a couple of other things:  Faiqa (the one who isn’t Jewish) wrote an article about the winter holiday of Hanukkah (the one that is Jewish) — and got some flack about it.   And the recent shooting at an elementary school in Newtown, CT was on our minds as well.

But we end it by celebrating Christmas — yes, Christmas — through a way both of us could connect.  How? You’ll see…
