Our first Jew of the week is Mike Pesca, host of the long-running daily podcast The Gist, which he recently relaunched independently. He tells us what podcasts he’s listening to, why it’s important to talk to people you disagree with, and about his childhood as a self-described “pizza bagel” (half Jewish, half Italian).

Our second Jew of the week is Argentine journalist Javier Sinay, author of the newly translated book The Murders of Moisés Ville: The Rise and Fall of the Jerusalem of South America. He tells us about the Jewish immigrant colony in Argentina that was home to Jewish gauchos, and how he went about solving a series of mysterious 1897 murders in the thriving Jewish enclave.

We’re looking for contestants on our kids game show podcast Hebrew School! Do you know a curious kid age 7-12 who wants to be challenged with fun Jewish quizzes and games? Go to tabletm.ag/hebrewschool for more information and to apply.
