For thinkers and pop culture enthusiasts

Even if you haven’t seen the wide variety of programs and movies they discuss, the conversations are fascinating. Pop culture serves as a modern entry to age old philosophies found in biblical and rabbinic Torah. You don’t have to be observant or even media savvy to enjoy the discussions. This is a podcast for all!
