This isn’t a site or podcast about hummus. It’s about respecting differences, finding points of intersection and asking difficult and awkward questions in the spirit of peaceful coexistence.
Mostly, what we’re trying to do here is answer that highly poignant question, “Can’t we all just get along?”
The answer is, “Yes. Yes we can… as long as you keep your hands of my hummus.”

The Jewish Dude
Mike Scheinberg (“Shiny”) hails from the Washington, DC area — a virtual marketplace of different cultures and worlds where arguments about hummus take place on a daily basis. He identifies as an unconservative Conservative Jew and spends time volunteering as an educator and leader for Jewish youth to explain what that actually means. Mike also volunteers as a clinic escort — ensuring that patients and companions have access to women’s clinics in the area. He currently resides in Northern Virginia (right outside of DC) with his wonderful wife and son and three cats who pretty much run the world. You can find him on Twitter as @mr_shiny. He prefers his hummus with minced black olives.
