Episode #216: “Concentration” camps, Vegans

It is into an under construction Twilight Lounge that the boys descend this week, willfully ignoring the chaos that surrounds them (for the most part, until the smoke detector goes off). After a two-week layoff, Goldbrener has returned from his Sequoia Park poker outing to muse on potential guest hosts during Rosen’s upcoming summer-long European trip. Spoiler alert: there will be no guest hosts.

Rosen then explains why nobody in college likes the sober guy with the guitar before segueing into Jewish news, including: problem with Jewish foreskin inspectors, Impossible Burgers(TM) and AOC’s latest headline-stealing stunt. From here things, as they do, get serious, as the boys try to solve the border crisis before backpedaling and asking:

Are Vegan delis good for the Jews?

Honestly, what’s the big deal? Bring it on.

Would you trust a tiny smoke detector?

 

Episode #215: Black-Jewish caucus, buying cowboy boots

Sit back, pour yourself a ManMosa and return to the comforting Twilight Lounge for the latest sparring session between your favorite urban Jews, Rosen and Goldbrener. This week, the boys recount Rosen’s Texan boot-buying expedition (and Goldbrener’s run-in with a youthful anti-tech enthusiast) before once again returning to the concept of faith — this time as it applies to religions that are “foisted on you” versus ones that you must pursue. From there they jump to Ashkenazi Jews’ inherited cholesterol, Adam Sandler’s bat mitzvah entertainment and old Jews telling jokes.

Meanwhile, in the news, a government committee begs the following question:

Is the Congressional black-Jewish caucus good for the Jews?

Well… it’s not exactly the ideal, but isn’t any positive step a good step?

Better than Boot Barn.
