I talked with the Marvin Pinkert, Executive Director of the Jewish Museum of Maryland. They're featuring a Harry Houdini show right now. Marvin and I talk about the prodound impact of Jewish American history on American History. Did you know The Three Stooges were Jewish? How about Superman and Stan Lee? Or Dr. Jonas Salk, inverntor of the polio vaccine. Or Spartacus himself and one of the first cross-dressing movie characters, Tony Curtis (nee. Bernie Schwartz) And did you know Marvin himself thought the only job you could have in a museum was guard? Interesting stories!
