For a session designed to help Rosen work through his existential crisis regarding Barack Obama. Along the way, they also discuss unlikely occupations for Jews, how Libertarians are like the ACLU, famous Jews in San Francisco, Ron’s musical daughter Laura (whose country-tinged track, “Once,” closes the episode) and why Rosen cares about Israel.
Also, Goldbrener briefly introduces a plastic bag logical fallacy.
Our man at AIPAC, Sam Lauter is summoned to the Twilight Lounge
To talk Rosen down off the ledge after a rant so completely off the rails that it doomed the original Episode #44 to oblivion. Fresh from a trip to Washington (and a meeting with Nancy Pelosi), Sam breaks down recent events that have caused tension among the U.S., Israel, Iran, Democrats, Republicans and basically everyone with access to social media, while simultaneously offering a compassionate shoulder to cry on for 49ers fans worldwide.
The Twlilight Lounge is barely large enough to contain the lanky frame of our tallest-ever guest.
Goldbrener has returned from Israel and is ready to give us the lowdown on life in the Homeland, including a discussion of Prime Minister Netanyahu’s decision to speak before the U.S. Congress… but not until the boys spend 20 minutes talking about t-shirts, why Rosen normally doesn’t wear black jeans, how living in a city is like living in a small town and why “cool dads” are poisoning the waters for the rest of us.
To some, there is nothing cooler than a ska suit and a narrow tie.
