First we visit Philadelphia restaurateurs Mike Solomonov and Steve Cook at their new Brooklyn restaurant, Laser Wolf, a shipudiya, or Israeli skewer house, named for the butcher in Fiddler on the Roof. You can listen to our 2019 road trip to Philadelphia, where we spoke to Solomonov and Cook at their restaurant, Zahav, on Episode 204.

Tablet columnist James Kirchick also returns to the show to talk about his new book, Secret City: The Hidden History of Gay Washington.
