Today’s episode is with Zohar Weiman-Kelman, a scholar of Yiddish literature and an all around badass. We talked about the erotics of Yiddish, fetish, ghosts, and poetry. Zohar also reads for us a spooky Yiddish poem. A dank Zohar! A fraylikhn Halloween tsu alemen!
I also want to send warm thoughts to everyone vis-a-vis the tragedy in Pittsburgh. I didn’t include anything in the episode about this because frankly I don’t have anything comforting to say in vos far a shprakh es zol nisht zayn, but I stand with all of you in the US and abroad who are feeling scared, sad, and angry. And to our listeners in Pittsburgh or from the area, Vaybertaytsh sends you love, warmth, and hugs. <3
