Pardon the Interruption

Ep. 289: So long, Tishrei! Hello, October!

September 30, 2021

This week on Unorthodox, we interrupt our usual programming to talk about interrupting, and the battle between extroverts and introverts.

Liel speaks with professor Jacques Berlinerblau about his new book, The Philip Roth We Don’t Know: Sex, Race, and Autobiography, and Mark speaks with Hanna Stein, who portrays Shira Liedman on Netflix’s Never Have I Ever, and who was connected to us by her dad, a proud member of the J-Crew.
