Episode #186: Of mice, Sascha, Mark and Birthright

This week, the boys reconvene in the Twilight Lounge to discuss Rosen’s adventures with mice, Goldbrener’s complete mastery over gophers and a panoply of Jewish issues and news. Should Facebook permit allow the ravings of Holocaust deniers? What would Steve Jobs do? If a Jew-hater gets 25 percent of the primary vote in Contra Costa County, should we be worried?

Is Sascha Baron Cohen good for the Jews?

Though this seems like this question could take hours to answer, it doesn’t, which affords us the mixed blessing of enough time to disagree over the recent phenomenon of Birthright kids who ditch the program in the most a theatrical manner possible. Buckle up!

Friendly? No.
