A MUST for Jewish scholars

I love how this podcast tackles real issues from a feminist halachic stance. This is intellectually stimulating and highly engaging!

Speakers not speaking clearly and cross conversations interrupt flow of information. Not continuing to listen although the topics are interesting.

Loopholes

The logic used in this podcast so often seems to go opposite to how it should in religion of commandments with these loopholes; they say "this is what I want to do, so let me find any piece of scripture that can be stretched to permit it". I'm by no means a perfect nor always great Jew, but I think it's better to apologize to G-d and ask forgiveness for shortcomings, not to find a loophole. That being said, I do like the educational elements to this show, or when relationships are examined without resorting to finding hard-to-believe loopholes.
