Episode #168: Aayyyy!

Goldbrener is beardless, but the cool air of the Twilight Lounge is not enough to quell Rosen’s outrage at mid-winter heat. Will he crack under the sweltering pressure? Will anyone take his free Pottery Barn cubes?

Meanwhile, Superbowl LII had no Jewish players but two Jewish owners, Sarah Silverman is on the market, the boys can’t agree on what “anti-Israel” means and Poland has outlawed blaming itself for the Holocaust, and…

Is The Fonz good for the Jews?

It doesn’t take a time machine to show what The Fonz meant to little Jewish boys in the 1970s and The King of Real Estate’s Fonzie meetup proves that Winkler remains one of the nicest men in Hollywood. Of course The Fonz is good for the Jews!

Free at last, free at last.

Episode #54: “Giant TVs. Unbelievable nachos.”

Goldbrener shows up looking “talibanesque,” according to his wife, which sends Rosen into a flight of fancy about how he wishes he missed barbershops but in fact found them to be sources of anxiety. Continuing their hirsute theme, the boys then segue into a study of the cruel ironies of aging, personified by “an inch-long hair growing out of the middle of your nose,” then continue onto a meditation on rites of passage by asking the question:

“Is the senior prom good for the Jews?”

The answer may not surprise you, but the ease at which Eric transitions into talking about the IDF might.

Some people, like Eric, inexplicably made it through the 80s hating this band..
