This week on Unorthodox, Robert Zimmerman gets a Nobel Prize.

Our Jewish guest is David Kaufman, editor in chief of Alexa, the luxury magazine of the New York Post, and editor of the newspaper’s Travel and Home/Real Estate sections. He just got back from visiting Amar’e Stoudemire and his family in Jerusalem, and he tells us why moving to laid-back Israel was a relief for the former New York Knick.

Our Gentile of the Week is Nelson Eddy, the official historian for the Jack Daniels distillery. He tells us about the brand’s recent kosher certification, the Lutheran minister who trained young Jack Daniels in the art of whiskey-making, and even offers to make Liel a Tennessee Squire.
