Episode #142: “Kushner redux, art vs. commerce.”

Join us in the Twilight Lounge for an evening of high and low culture, unseen hand-waving, in-depth discussions of the value of art versus commerce, the meaning of the word “career” and Rosen’s ill-advised flirtation with the music of the Grateful Dead. Is he being driven crazy by the heat or has Goldbrener’s circuitous debate style finally pushed him so far that hippie iconography somehow seems a reasonable, safe harbor of retreat?

Fortunately, no. Meanwhile, motorcyclists are tearing through die-ins and we ask:

Can Jared Kushner bring peace to the Middle East?

In a word, no; but not for reasons you’d think. Settle in as Goldbrener lays out his strategy for long-term sustainability in the Middle East. Hint: it has nothing to do with anything Jared Kushner can do during his solo visit to Israel.


In this instance, Eric is wrong.
