This week, Unorthodox heads to Palo Alto, California, for a special live taping at the Oshman Family JCC.

Our Jewish guest is Eddan Katz, a cyber-crime lawyer who ran the global program at the Electronic Frontier Foundation and now works with technology start-ups. He tells us about Sudo Room [1], the hackerspace he founded in Oakland, and the minyan of Syrian hamsters that has taken up residency in his home.

Our Gentile of the Week is Amanda Bradford, founder and CEO of The League [2], an exclusive dating app that uses data from Facebook and LinkedIn to match its highly selective pool of ambitious [3] singles. She tells us the keys to a successful online dating profile (no cat photos, ugh), plus how Jews are overrepresented in her app’s dating pool, and what it takes to get kicked off the app.

Kvetch away! Send comments and complaints to [5]. We’ll share our favorites on air. Come see us live at the American Hebrew Academy in Greensboro, North Carolina, on May 16.
