It’s Culturally Relevant

Aryeh picks the most interesting guests and invariably finds a way to connect with them like they’re old friends, and then delve deeply into issues both urgent and frivolous, difficult and effortless. It’s like eavesdropping on a conversation at a cafe that you really want to be a part of!
