Good shmooze!

Smart and wide-ranging--and in a nice, bite-sized length, with a great variety of guests talking about everything from the perfect pickle to Bob Dylan's influence on the Beatles. Good stuff!

Brief and enlightening

This wonderful podcast from the Yiddish Book Center out of Amherst, Massachusetts is a weekly visit to the center where one meets the people and projects surrounding their work to rescue, disseminate, digitize, translate, and innovate in telling the Yiddish and Jewish story with their collection of over a million Yiddish books. The interviews cover many people involved with the center, including scholars, musicians, visiting artists, translators, book rescuers, curators, students, and many more. Many episodes run fifteen to thirty minutes, making it a brief, perfect little podcast.
