Episode #184: Quotas, Mormons, greedy landlords guy

Rosen is back from what he considered a sub-par road trip (too little time, too many missed opportunities), which the boys use as a jumping off point to explore the nature of Texas, the Navajo term for white people, retiring on a boat, why Rosen thinks all San Franciscans should be forced to take road trips and finding paradise in Laughlin, Nevada.

Onto Jewish news: is hotshot pol Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez responsible for the “greedy Jewish landlords” guy? How can you tell the purpose of rabbinical students roaming Montana from that of Mormon missionaries? What did Rosen’s dad see when he got home from work? And finally…

Is rolling back race-based college admission preferences good for the Jews?

Jews are historically on the losing end of higher education quotas, but do they have any skin in this particular game? Listen in as two ambivalent Jews offer their takes.

Not missed.
