Before Ilya Khodosh went off to graduate school, he spent a lot of time online, especially when he had insomnia or felt anxious. For Khodosh, moving to a new city was a new opportunity to go cold turkey and stop websurfing, which meant no Internet at home. As he explains in this story, which recently won first prize in a Jewish storytelling slam, that deprivation didn’t last long.

Ilya Khodosh is currently enrolled in a graduate theater program where he is studying criticism and playwriting. [Running time: 8:11.]

Chabadniks wear different hats and don’t have payot (sidecurls) – get a new graphic artist :)

Funniest thing I’ve heard in . . . several days. Keep up the good work, Sr. Khodosh and Vox Tab.

@Mildred, listen to the audio clip.

So I also get he is trying to imitate almost word for word and in style the way Nicholas Kristof of the New York Times does all his podcasts on serious issues……
