Pod Drash offers a Jewish take on podcasts. Each episode is based on an issue as tackled in another podcast, which host Leon Wiener Dow and his guests riff on (i.e., “drash”), using Jewish tradition to provide new insights and even greater depth. Pod Drash is a project of Kolot.

Post-truth, fake news, multiple narratives. How are we to sort out and sift through the multitude of images and words thrown our way – by friends, interested parties, and algorithms? Building upon Rabbit Hole episode ‘Where We Go One,’ Context Guest Rabba Sara Hurwitz of Maharat and Justin Hecht, Jungian psychoanalyst, help host Leon Wiener Dow fig…
 
What would it mean for a woman to sing authentically a song composed by a man about his experience as a man (who dresses in black)? That’s the kind of question we didn’t ask in S2 E5, “Fake It Till You Feel It.” Listen in as Leon extends a confessional invitation that may pave the way for a bonus episode. Listen to Cherry's live acoustic cover of "…
 
“Off the record” talk is often the most forthright, and anonymous surveys or peer-reviews allow us to speak honestly. But what about accountability? What do we do when our hidden identity allows us to spew vile? Which is the true me? Reply All’s The Writing on the Wall allows Context guest Rabbi Jay Henry Moses and Hypertext guest journalist Dahlia…
 
We interrupt Season Two to bring you a podcast on a podcast on a podcast. Judaism Unbound turned Pod Drash host Leon Wiener Dow into their guest, and explored the rationale and approach to Torah that underlies Pod Drash. If you've ever wondered why every episode begins right in the middle of things, or what the Hypertext segment is about - tune in!…
 
How are you today? Crappy, but can I tell you that? We face this quandary in every role we play - as guest, as customer, in our professional lives, and in our home ecosystems. Building upon The Work Life episode Authenticity is a Double-Edged Sword, Context guest Rabbi Amichai Lau-Lavie of Lab/Shul and Hypertext guest conductor John Axelrod help ho…
 
Generosity can nourish not just the receiver, but the giver, too. Is there a point when the act of giving can itself be a source of greed? Revisionist History’s My Little Hundred Million allows us to explore whether ulterior motives can taint the act of generosity and how it can lead it astray. Joining host Leon Wiener Dow for The Context segment i…
 
Once we achieve financial security, after the promotion, if we just get the manuscript published, if only we win the prize - then we’ll be content, because we will have received the recognition for which we’re pining. But as we hear in The Happiness Lab’s The Silver Lining, when external recognition finally comes, it often leaves us hollow inside. …
 
When we first lay our eyes upon someone, we behold what they offer, willingly or unwillingly. The contour of the figure, the texture of the fabric, the pigment of the skin. This American Life’s Tell Me I’m Fat will help us ask: Can we unsee? Should we try to blind ourselves? And what about me in here, who knows that I’m not seen because of how it (…
 
“Smile!” We’ve been saying that just before snapping a picture for years, long before selfies, Facebook and Instagram. But now we not only want to capture the moment; we want to share it, and widely. Radiolab’s “Smile My Ass” tells the story of the show “Candid Camera,” which in turn allows us to explore the profound effect that this constant state…

The idea of teshuva rests on the belief that we can break from our past habits and transform ourselves. But sometimes people – whether the victim or not, whether knowingly or unknowingly – continue to hold fast to our past as part of their posturing towards us. Listening in on Invisibilia’s episode The Personailty Myth, which tells of the complicat…
 
Sometimes effectuating change takes a very long time. This episode begins with “The Meatball and Chain,” a segment of This American’ Life’s Episode 668, which tells of a slow-brew teshuva. From there we explore the barriers that we often erect between us and our own wrongdoings – with an eye towards deconstructing them. Guests: Rabbi Professor Davi…
 
Sometimes it’s too long, sometimes it’s too short. Sometimes it’s too technical, other times its strokes are too broad. But occasionally, it’s just right. After listening to Dan Harmon’s public apology for sexually harassing her, Megan Ganz describes in This American Life Episode 674, Get a Spine, how Harmon nailed it. We try to unpack what worked …
 
One of the most difficult – and potent – ways of going about teshuva is to see look at ourselves critically by trying to see ourselves from outside. We begin by listening to The Nod’s episode One on One alongside a different version of it that aired on This American Life, in which a daughter broaches a difficult conversation with her dad, taking hi…
