Lorraine DeGraffenreidt is a black person! Sarah Isaacson is a Jewish person! As it turns out, there's a lot of black and Jewish stuff that they don't know anything about -- and that makes them feel guilty! So now, they're getting learnt up. Join Lorraine and Sarah as they discover classic movies everyone's already seen (Schindler's List anyone???), conquer basic ethnic foods (chicken and waffles!!!) and generally improve as adult people, all while making their black and Jewish dads proud.
Ciao for now / Afrofuturism and Rosalind Franklin
Get ready for a super-special yet bittersweet ep that will leave you yearning for answers. Is Lorraine really going away to military school? Has Sarah really not peeped the Drake album yet? If a British Jew falls in a science lab and nobody else is there, does it make a sound? (No; British Jews don’t exist.) For today’s homework, Sarah and Lorraine decided to revisit old recommendations from guests and listeners.
Gettin’ Learnt Up on Sports Pt. 2
Happy summer of sports!!! To celebrate, Learnt Up is flexin on ‘em with another sports episode!!! Sarah reports current sports news that is hot hot hot off the presses and then she presents a list of hot hot hot boys from the 2018 World Cup soccer field. Meanwhile, Lorraine brags about her fancy, soccer star brothers and she gets learnt up on basketball-has-been Carmelo Anthony.
Sharing the Shame with Todd McClintock
Todd McClintock invites Sarah and Lorraine to join him in getting learnt up on a bleak topic - The Potato Famine - and the conversation is disturbingly delightful.
Live at The Pico 06.05.18
You have the incredible podcast hosts of 2 Jews Talking to thank for this one! That's right! Friends of the podcast, Joshua Heller & Erika Brooks Adickman invite Sarah and Lorraine to share a fun night of live podcasting at The Pico.
DRAKE pt. 2
Sarah & Lorraine are comin’ at ya with part two of their Drake learnts!!! And just like in Drake pt. 1, your hosts take a moment to spotlight Cardi B & all her glory. Before Sarah & Lorraine discuss the current Drake/Pusha T beef, they must settle an unrelated rap feud that has been building up in the podcast studio. Once they put the emotional stuff behind them, they share their thoughts on their beloved Black-and-Jew Boo, Drake!
Sharing the Shame with Dana Bell: Albert Einstein
Dear friend of the podcast, Dana Bell comes through to get learnt up on Albert Einstein’s life and many of his discoveries in math and science. Behind Einstein’s wild hair and crazy face, he kept a beautiful brain filled with complex thoughts on our universe. Dana tells us all about how - in addition to being a brilliant scientist - Einstein was also a leftist, socialist philosophy bro with anti-war sentiments as well as a deep love for his cousin-wife, Elsa.

I love em sooooo much
I just discovered this podcast today and I can’t wait to binge the rest! Great host chemistry, comedy, and fun face in a easy listening but larger than a podcast type of way!
Fun fact - you can listen to 18 episodes of Learnt Up in one day while driving from Austin to Tucson. I would know.
This podcast has honest and hard working hosts who know how to do their research, the episodes have interesting topics, and you can learn about great sponsors for products like Baby I Want That or Bubbe’s Bubbles that will make your life complete.
I would eat Drake’s butthole
This podcast is perfect. It’s super educational and talks about real issues, but there’s chemistry, conversation, and jokes. The conversation is organic and free-flowing, but there’s also structure and regular segments to make sure you learn while you’re laughing. I have both laughed out loud in the middle of a silent subway car, and gotten a little choked up while listening. I’m convinced that Lorraine is the second coming of Jesus (like Drake, another great black Jew).
