Episode #106: “Sunflower seeds, Pamplona, Brexit.”

The world can be a terrifying place. Thankfully, we have to relative calm of the Twilight Lounge as refuge. Join the boys this week as they discuss the proper way to eat sunflower seeds, check up on Goldbrener’s bus adventures, wax poetic on the running of the bulls, consider the best Twilight Zone episode and assess the threat level coming from an Iranian General named after an Italian lunch meat. It’s all a warm-up, though, preceding this week’s somewhat belated question:

Is Brexit good for the Jews?

This question proves to be remarkably dense, encompassing social, political, economical and emotional issues and touching on Israel’s status as a trade partner with England, the EU’s attitude toward the Jewish state versus its anxiety surrounding Middle Eastern refugees and the general Jewish aversion to global instability.

The Twilight Lounge: lightweights not encouraged.

A dimension not only of sight and sound, but of mind.
