Around the Table

Ep. 335: ‘Somebody Feed Phil’ star Phil Rosenthal on honoring his late parents on screen, and CBS Sunday Morning’s Faith Salie on raising Jewish children in a multifaith family

October 27, 2022

This week on Unorthodox, we’re getting together around the table.

Our Jewish guest is Phil Rosenthal, who returns to the show to tell us about season 6 of his delightful travel food show, Somebody Feed Phil, which includes a tribute to his late parents, Max and Helen Rosenthal, and the accompanying cookbook, Somebody Feed Phil: The Book. He also tells us what his Yom Kippur break-fast looks like, why he scoops out his bagel, and why Jews aren’t the only cultural group who finds connection over food.


Our gentile of the week is the multitalented Faith Salie, a contributor to CBS Sunday Morning, frequent panelist on NPR’s Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me, and author of Approval Junkie. She brings us Coca-Cola cake and tells us about growing up Catholic in Atlanta and learning about Judaism as she raises Jewish children with her husband.
