Unorthodox

Just the Two of Us

This week on Unorthodox: Architect Duo Dickinson, a cradle Episcopalian, brings secular sacraments, and a 7-year-old tells us what she thinks of Donald Trump

June 16, 2016


This week on Unorthodox: public swimming pool drama in Brooklyn, and one Jewish man’s unusual sperm donation program.

We don’t have a Jewish guest this week, but we have reached peak gentile: award-winning architect Duo Dickinson, a cradle Episcopalian, joins us for a lively discussion about drinking, WASPs, and the difference between designing a church and a synagogue. He also brings us a secular sacrament—Triscuits and homemade iced tea—and a book called Haikus for Jews.

We also get a visit from our producer Julie’s daughter Leah, who joins us on-air for a discussion of presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump.

We love mail! Email us at [email protected] with comments, questions, and complaints. We may share your letter on air.

Unorthodox is a smart, fresh, fun weekly take on Jewish news and culture hosted by Mark Oppenheimer, Stephanie Butnick, and Liel Leibovitz. You can listen to individual episodes here or subscribe on iTunes.
