Rabbi Bassous makes life easier, extremely knowledgeable and great speaking voice! I highly recommend this podcast.

Rabbi Bassous has an encyclopedic knowledge of the Talmud and Mishnah, and a fair measure of chesed to boot. Listening, as a member of a welcoming, lovely Reform shul, I have found there is so much that is absolutely compatible with what I’m learning from our rabbi— and a huge breadth of life experience and willingness to teach that he has in areas most US rabbis don’t touch in public ( marriage advice, Kabbalah, Christianity and Islam). He also has a great twist on mussar. Yes, there are some things he says that should be taken with a grain of salt — and just a few that are offensive (credit for an earthquake in eretz yisrael was given to egalitarian wall prayer efforts)— but he is trying hard to not engage in lashon hará, and to make his Orthodox Sephardic training accessible to all.
This rabbi is one reason why I left orthodoxy. All he does is put people down and anything that’s not his idea of Torah.
The very things he talks about in not “putting people down” is the exact thing he is doing: putting people that aren’t like him down.
