Ep. 309: A deep dive into our mailbox, plus TikTok sax star Evan Jacobson and journalist Shawn Setaro

March 10, 2022

This week on Unorthodox, we’re doing the Wordle.

Evan Jacobson is a TikTok saxophone sensation. You might have seen his viral series where he adds sax solos to “songs that don’t need them.” We got him to compose sax solos to such cultural Jewish anthems as “Sunrise, Sunset” and Jeff Buckley’s cover of “Hallelujah.”

Shawn Setaro is a writer and podcaster, who created and hosted The Cipher, a hip-hop podcast produced by Unorthodox’s own Josh Kross. He talks with us about his new book, Dummy Boy: Tekashi 6ix9ine and the Nine Trey Gangsta Bloods.
