This week on Unorthodox, we’re talking about Tisha B’Av and what we can learn from this ancient day of mourning. Joshua Malina gives us a refresher on the saddest day in Jewish history and leaves us with an important and hopeful Tisha B’Av takeaway.

Then, we’re bringing you an extended conversation with our gentile of the week Bill Courtney about the things we all can do to give up resentment and division and commit ourselves to empathy and change. He’s the football coach depicted in the Academy Award-winning documentary Undefeated and now hosts the new podcast An Army of Normal Folks.
