Ever dreamed of spending Saturday night with two rabbis? Who hasn’t? Rabbi Irwin Kula and Rabbi Brad Hirschfield of the National Center for Jewish Learning and Leadership are launching “Intelligent Talk Radio,” in Portland, Oregon this week The rabbis will spend a midnight hour each week tackling compelling and engaging topics about the American spiritual, cultural, and political landscape.
Going beyond religion, the radio rabbis use their own unique perspectives to provide an alternative to the medium’s usual banter between the left- and the right-wing population. The rabbis, both seasoned media personalities who have appeared on everything from our own Beliefnet.com to Bridges TV to Frontline and The Today Show, will try and uncover the hidden agendas buried deep on both sides of the right/left divide. Topics are said to span from reinstating the draft, to God on the political ropes, to the shootings over PlayStation 3.
Perhaps one of their future shows will be broadcast from a pub, just so Idol Chatter can use the line: “Two rabbis and a radio walk into a bar…”
