I love this podcast!

Fun, irreverent and deep. It’s perfect. I just listened to the pre-Yom Kippur podcast and it really made me think about my Judaism and what being Jewish means to me. At the same time, I smiled and laughed throughout.

Like hearing from smart, interesting friends

Jordana and Shannon are longtime Kveller contributors, and now readers (and others) can hear them interview a range of people about so many different topics based on their expertise or life experience. In the end the theme is Jewish parenting, but I've gotten to hear from SCOTUS reporter Dahlia Lithwick as well as a suburban mom who battled drug addiction. When I listen, my dog walk/commute/laundry folding flies by.

Not a Jewish Mother

Okay, so I’m not a Jewish Mother...yet but as a Jewish twenty-something, I absolutely love this podcast. Listening to Jordana and Shannon feels like having coffee with two old friends. In almost every episode, I laugh, I cry, and I find something to be deeply moved about. More than once I’ve pulled into work and had to fix my mascara because I’ve been tearing up listening to CYM...the good kind of tearing up where you feel like a better, stronger person than you did before. These two ladies are a delight to listen to and I feel like my world has grown since they and their wonderful guests came into my life. Thank you!!!
