Episode #127: “Avoid these colleges!”

Where were you when BART stopped? Goldbrener was trapped on a train. Rosen was wearing insufficient shoes. Combined, this meant a podcast rainout but a no less feisty Goldbrener. Join him and his foil, Rosen, as they discuss the booming sales of Mein Kampf, Ukrainian anti-semitism and this week’s pressing question:

Is a list of “40 Worst Colleges for Jewish Students” good for the Jews?

Rosen wants to know why Israel is singled out on college campuses, which means it’s time for him to get schooled (again) by Goldbrener on matters both Middle Eastern and worldly, with a few  tips on how to engage with an enemy thrown in. In the end, neither Jew is entirely convinced that a list of the 40 Worst Colleges for Jewish Students is good for the Jews.


I wouldn’t send a dog out on a night like this.
