Idol Chatter

A few months ago, Idol Chatter brought you the news that Beliefnet contributer Rabbi Irwin Kula, president of CLAL–The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, and an oft-sought voice on public culture and religion in the public square, was taking his wisdom to television. Now Kula is rabbinically rocking the radio airwaves, with co-host (and Beliefnet contributor) Rabbi Brad Hirschfield, on “Hirschfield and Kula: Intelligent Talk Radio.”

Can’t tune in live? Check out the appropriately named, which also provides complete listings on current and upcoming shows, an archive with podcasts of past shows, and background information on “Irwin and Brad” about their blogs, books, DVDs, and other materials.

“The excitement of launching the website is that we can start building a community of people who want to be intelligent about the issues that so polarize and divide our country,” said Kula. “The website will insure that the conversation continues past the midnight hour.”

Hirschfield added that “This show is about great conversation. This site is everyone’s opportunity to continue the conversation that begins on air every Saturday night. If you can’t be with us on Saturday night, you can still get intelligent by listening online 24/7.”

Hirschfield and Kula talk gun control, the environment, abortion, and more, going beyond the traditional left and right-wing positioning. Listen up at (And forgive Kula his blogging capitalization trespasses.)
