Jewish Podcasts You Should Hear


Stuck in traffic, taking a nice walk? Tap into these great podcasts to learn, get inspired or just be entertained! 


Chutzpod! is a weekly podcast in which Rabbi Shira Stutman, Joshua Malina, & honored guests bring a Jewish lens to life’s toughest questions: Who do I want to be in this one life? How do we work to heal this broken world? And how, dear G-d, did gefilte fish become a thing? It’s a podcast for people of all or no faiths; Hebrew school truants and proud yeshiva graduates; those who want to be inspired but don’t want to schlep to synagogue; basically, anyone trying to live a meaningful life during these trying times. Joshua & Rabbi Shira have had radically different career trajectories and live on opposite ends of America, but do what Jews do best… teach & learn; crack jokes; and argue with one another about everything under the sun. chutzpod.com

Nice Jewish Girls 

This podcast is not about Nice Jewish Girls. It’s about Jewish girls who are so much more than nice. It’s about journalists and authors, speechwriters and senators, prime ministers and rock stars. This podcast will redefine the way we see Jewish women—not as Jewish American Princesses, not as nags or klutzes, not as bossy or loud. As strong, as smart, as fearless. As Esthers, as Rachels, as Miriams. Every week, host Julia Jassey will be speaking to Jewish women who are breaking new ground and changing history. jewishunpacked.com/podcast-series/nice-jewish-girls
