Beautiful

I find the writing of this show very beautiful, and it really inspires me in my Talmud study. <3

Natick Town ,

the punk rock of text study

Thoroughly enjoyable, honest, controversial, thought-provoking, soul stirring, progressive and . . . traditional. A well-produced podcast with a punk rock aesthetic.

GSPuertas ,

An honest and loving presentation

Mo Martin's refreshing perspective on Talmud combines a reverent passion for Judaism and Torah study with a fearless historical perspective rooted in the sensibilities of a social justice activist. This podcast has great potential!
