Love this podcast!!
Interesting podcast even for non-jews.
This podcast is interesting even for a Gentile!
Content and perspective relating to the challenges of applying and adapting tradition and Torah text to modern changes / evolution in culture are especially interesting — like the latest episode on inter-marriage.
Some of the thoughts on dealing and adapting are relevant across the board in multiple contexts: religion / life / business.
