When you're Jewish, everything you do and experience comes out Jew-ish. Each week, Josh Heller & Erika Brooks Adickman compare notes on pop culture, gender, politics & life.
 
Talking about anything at anytime.
 
The theme behind our podcast is simple. Each week the Mister and the Missus will each bring one, single topic to discuss. Anything we found interesting from that week can be on the table. This includes entertainment, current events, political news...basically, whatever suits our fancy. We conclude each episode with a segment from "The Learnin' Corner" where one of us hopes to drop some unknown knowledge on the other...and possibly on you.
