Episode #100(!) “Seth Rogen, Reebok, and Brandon Soulchild.”

Tired, called a racist by a terribly misguided Twitter warrior, Rosen enters the Twilight Lounge for the 100th time, ready to indict Twitter, manipulative language, San Francisco’s Vehicle Eradication Project (VEP) and Jewish Heritage Month. Fortunately, Goldbrener provides a calming influence, steering this 100th episode of (Is it) Good for the Jews? through discussions of ska music and Reebok’s attempt to (maybe) market a “Happy Birthday Israel” pair of kicks. What’s really on everyone’s mind, though, is this:

Is Seth Rogen good for the Jews?

What is the responsibility of public figures, especially those carrying the mantle of the Jewish people? Is it enough to succeed as an actor, producer and writer, or should Rogen be doing something else? And what of creative geniuses whose personal lives are a mess, or worse? Do their personal failings discredit their creative successes?

This episode not sponsored by Reebok, though we’d happily accept their money.

REEBOK

 Just another example of Jewish oppression.
