Episode #201: AirBnB feels the heat; Rosen feels the pretzels

This week, the boys convene during a ferocious storm (by California standards) to discuss the following topics: Rosen’s pretzel addiction and generally incomprehensible diet restrictions, whether Goldbrener could weigh 600 lbs., why Nina Burleigh feels talking about Chabad is the “third rail” of American journalism, Black Cube, why Goldbrener feels Jews should attend USF’s Middle Eastern Studies lecture series, how the boys may never find common ground regarding the Women’s March and finally…

Is making AirBnB “feel the heat” good for the Jews?

When Florida Governor Ron Di Santis recently vowed to make AirBnB “feel the heat” using his state’s new anti-BDS law, was he acting in the best interests of his constituents? Was he acting on his conscience? Or was he pandering? And do we — the Jews, for we are the Jews — need this?

Episode #200: Jew-hating, woke-washing, LeBron’s Jewish money

As we ease into the new year, technology hates Rosen — but that’s nothing new. Jenna Jameson, passionate Jew, has left Twitter due to all of the anti-semitism, Omri Casspi is picking fights with his teammates. LeBron James is interested in getting that Jewish money, and Goldbrener isn’t entirely convinced he should apologize.  Or that the NFL isn’t a non-profit. And should a Jew-hating osteopath continue remain a doctor?

Meanwhile, in tolerant San Francisco, Manny Yuketiel is asking…

Is a Jew opening a progressive cafe/events space in The Mission good for the Jews?”

Apparently not, as the owner of Manny’s in San Francisco’s Mission District has learned. Despite making every effort to fit into the ethos of today’s hyper-vigilant Mission, Yuketiel nevertheless finds his business targeted weekly by sign-toting, window-smashing, slogan-chanting, Kristallnacht-method-adopting thugs.

Manny’s crime? Guess.

Don’t trust it.
