Description

Tablet is the web's top destination for Jewish news and culture, and on Unorthodox its writers say stuff their editors can't edit out. From Israel to American politics, Drake (yes, he's Jewish) to Amy Schumer, hosts Mark Oppenheimer, Stephanie Butnick, Liel Leibovitz, and guests (including a 'Gentile of the Week'!) offer frank, funny takes on the news of the Jews.

Customer Reviews

Insular topics and lack of taste.

Their ads presented this podcast as one which would be of interest to a large non-Jewish audience. Yet their inaugural topic of discussion was the suicide of some random woman in New York. The hosts seemed to believe that this was a big story, however from what I can tell this story did not break the New York bubble. I as a Texas gentile have little interest in the discussion of a tragic but largely inconsequential suicide. I may have been willing to overlook this choice of an inconsequential and insular topic, after all the medium of podcasts often leads to discussion of such topics, but shortly their after a host made an unforgivable statement. One host said that Grownups 2 was a "good movie". This statement demonstrates one of two things: 1. The host has a sense of judgement so poor that no view he holds has any value; or 2. He is willing to lie to his audience and therefore is not worth trusting. Poor choice of topics and a demonstration of a complete lack of judgement makes me question the value of the podcast. Hope they improve and realize that when doing a podcast which you advertise as having broad appeal don't start with a inconsequential topic simply because it happened by your offices.

A roundtable of people who do not know the subject matter

Growing up in a secular Jewish home, I became Orthodox as an adult, only to find myself drifting away from being religious in recent years. That said, I thought I was going to find this podcast really interesting. I cannot believe how disappointed I am in this podcast. It might be wise to get someone who is knowledgable about Jewish theology and history before declaring, as you said to Elna Baker, “your panel of Jewish experts.” The fact that no one knows the internal and external forces throughout Jewish history that keep one identifying as Jewish even if they are not religious, that no one seems to understand the concept of being the Chosen People, and that I have never heard a Jewish prayer that starts ‘we thank you for the bounties’ might make this podcast funny and snarky (to some), but it doesn’t add to the discussion of substantial Jewish issues. It was like listening to my uninformed cousins talking about being Jewish, when they have no idea of what they are talking about. This might be better called Secular Jewish Roundtable.

Irreverent Chat With The Chosen

Playful news and general discussion of judaistic subjects. Pleasant presenters and enjoyable content.
