No transcript...

Hello and welcome to episode four of the Situation Normal podcast! The podcast has the same vibe as the newsletter, but instead of reading, you listen to me tell stories to my friend Todd.

In this episode, I tell Todd a couple of Hanukkah stories. We also talk a lot about fried food and holiday traditions for Jews in America. Plus, I share a little about what my Jewish identity means to me.
