A couple of Jewish guys from San Francisco grappling with the world's problems through a very familiar lens.

    Episode #228: Crocs are an abomination

    Episode #228: Crocs are an abomination

    Lots of questions this week: Is the “Jew coup” behind the impeachment hearings? We’re so busy running banking, the media and the weather, how would we have time? Is Amazon evil, or is it what we want? Are we overreacting about the Auschwitz Christmas ornaments? What is a “motivator?” Is Wal-Mart opening a store in … Continue reading Episode #228: Crocs are an abomination →

    Episode #227: Jewish marketing, Sam Rosenbaum

    Episode #227: Jewish marketing, Sam Rosenbaum

    There’s a party upstairs, but we’re not invited. Instead, join a bruised and weary Rosen and a jaunty Goldbrener for tales of elderly (yet still annoying) dogs and their incompetent owners and European soccer teams who lean into their opponents’ anti-Semitism. The good news is that the boys continue on in a light vein, featuring … Continue reading Episode #227: Jewish marketing, Sam Rosenbaum →

    Episode #226: Goldblum, Bernie

    Episode #226: Goldblum, Bernie

    There’s plenty of ranting going on in the Twilight Lounge this week, thanks to the kid playing video games in the library. Thus triggered, Rosen descends into a somewhat thoughtful monologue that ends with the boys imagining their own (non-existent) Wikipedia pages and waxing nostalgic about their childhood audio experiences. Also mentioned this celebrity-laden week: … Continue reading Episode #226: Goldblum, Bernie →

    Episode #225: Rags to riches

    Episode #225: Rags to riches

    Don’t let Rosen’s migraine-induced miasma prevent you from enjoying this raucous episode of your favorite Jewish podcast. Instead, step into the Twilight Lounge to hear about Hamas’ never-ending threats, little kids dressed as Hitler, Goldbrener’s uniquely punk rock take on the shock value of the swastika and Rosen’s unsettling question about the anti-semites’ end game. … Continue reading Episode #225: Rags to riches →

    Episode #224: Free tuition… and paisley!

    Episode #224: Free tuition… and paisley!

    This week, Goldbrener declares his love for floral and paisley shirts and tells a horrifying tale of a friend who once had the hiccups for “years.” Somehow that leads to anxiety over the economics of adventure guides and eventually, a general suspicion about the purpose of a digital map of “Jewish San Francisco” and a … Continue reading Episode #224: Free tuition… and paisley! →

    Episode #223: Ayatollah redux, FaceTiming strangers

    Episode #223: Ayatollah redux, FaceTiming strangers

    Brace yourselves, real San Franciscans: it’s 85 degrees in October and Rosen is on the warpath (again), chewing gum and reusing his non-reusable plastic bottle only hours after surviving an embarrassing morning FaceTime incident. But stick around, because this is a lively episode of (Is it) Good for the Jews? that touches on the World … Continue reading Episode #223: Ayatollah redux, FaceTiming strangers →

Awesome Podcast

These guys are so funny, and Goldbrener always has interesting takes on all things (Jewish and not!). I recently found this podcast and have been going back and listening to the old episodes. I have learned so much about Judaism and other topics, while also enjoing the funny stories these guys are always telling. Awesome chemistry between the two hosts leads to a fantastic podcast. I have recommended this podcast to many friends, and I would do the same to you!
