Radio Free Babylonia.
The narration was riveting. The subject controversial and the content full of thought provoking information. The author's ability to bring history to
life painted a picture in my mind, which for me made it so truthful, real and understandable. Thank you.
An exciting step forward in modern talmudic scholarship, Radio Free Babylonia suggests that this centuries-old material can be considered seriously by modern progressives. Exactly what those of us for whom our religious life and our political convictions are not mutually exclusive. How tragic that this kind of media is so rare!
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!
