This week on Unorthodox, Ivanka Trump steals a kugel.

Our Jewish guest is Naftali Hanau, founder of Grow and Behold Foods [1], the Brooklyn-based purveyor of kosher pastured meat from animals raised on family farms with no hormones or antibiotics. He tells us about being trained as a kosher butcher, or shochet, and why he’s made it his mission to provide ethically produced kosher meat.

Our Gentile of the Week is Glynn Washington, host of NPR’s Snap Judgment [2], a storytelling show centered on major life decisions. He talks to Mark, who profiled [3] him for the Atlantic in 2013, about why the word “storytelling” is overused and how he knows when he has a great one.
