Interesting and fun listening
There are only a few occasions when interesting , culture, and fun come together- schmaltzy is one of those!
The episodes dig in just the right depth for joyful listening. Occasionally I learn new things about Jewish culture, other times I reach back into my own family memories- both are fun!
Keep up the good work! I’m looking forward to listening for years to come
