Episode #169: Bibi indicted, Route 66 disappointment

Back from another trip to Arizona, Rosen brings tales of frightening downtowns, methamphetamine-using cowboys, friendly used car salesmen and $45,000 homes to the Twilight Lounge before settling down to discuss bronze medal-winning Jews and Omri Casspi’s double-double. The real question on the table, however, is:

Is indicting Bibi good for the Jews?

The Israeli PM is under fire (again). What happens if he is convicted? How much tolerance do Israelis have for corruption (according to Goldbrener, quote a bit)? How dire is the threat from the north? Join us as the boys once again connect the dots.

Episode #168: Aayyyy!

Goldbrener is beardless, but the cool air of the Twilight Lounge is not enough to quell Rosen’s outrage at mid-winter heat. Will he crack under the sweltering pressure? Will anyone take his free Pottery Barn cubes?

Meanwhile, Superbowl LII had no Jewish players but two Jewish owners, Sarah Silverman is on the market, the boys can’t agree on what “anti-Israel” means and Poland has outlawed blaming itself for the Holocaust, and…

Is The Fonz good for the Jews?

It doesn’t take a time machine to show what The Fonz meant to little Jewish boys in the 1970s and The King of Real Estate’s Fonzie meetup proves that Winkler remains one of the nicest men in Hollywood. Of course The Fonz is good for the Jews!

Free at last, free at last.

Episode #167: Jews in South Dakota, Trees

Rosen has had it with mid-winter heat, so he steps into the cooling atmosphere of the Twilight Lounge, where Goldbrener is ready to deconstruct his eerie dream about “klikes” and consider guys dressed as Woody Allen, Omri Casspi’s flu, Olympic caliber Jews and an ultra-orthodox rabbi who’s moved to South Dakota, where he’ll become Jew #251.

But on this Tu b’Shevat we  ask:

Does Israel have enough trees?

The short answer is “Israel can always use more trees!” and thanks to Rosen’s dad’s friend Ron, they now have 1,000 more. From here we wander off to talk about Israeli food and plug Phil Rosenthal’s new show, before circling back and reminding ourselves again that yes, Elvis needs boats and Israel needs trees.

Casspi in healthier times.
