This week on Unorthodox, the hottest meal in Scottish prisons is … kosher.

Our Jewish guest is Willard Spiegelman, longtime English professor at Southern Methodist University and author of the new book of essays, Senior Moments: Looking Back, Looking Ahead. He tells us the worst fashion trend among college students today and why retiring to Manhattan is the secret to a long life.

Our Gentile of the Week is R.J. Hernández, whose new novel, An Innocent Fashion, which tells the story of a Cuban-American Ivy League grad who lands an internship at an elite fashion magazine and assumes a genteel-sounding name and pedigree, is based on his own experiences (R.J. interned at Vogue under the name Seymour Glass). He tells us why he felt he had to hide his heritage to make it in the high-fashion world, and schools us on Fashion Week, currently underway in New York City.

We love hearing from you! Email us at Unorthodox@tabletmag.com with comments, questions, and complaints. We may share your letter on air.
