Great Jewish Thinkers

May is Jewish American Heritage Month, so in acknowledgement our first live taping in over two years will be on the topic of Antisemitism. For this month's playlist, we've also put together a number of episodes from the archive featuring prominent Jewish thinkers, like Hannah Arendt, Walter Benjamin, Baruch Spinoza, and Sigmund Freud, in addition to a vintage episode on Jewish Philosophy.
