Shortwave | God vs Gay

Hey there, scroll down and click on the play button to hear this episode!

God vs. Gay? is one of many books by author and spiritual teacher Dr. Jay Michaelson. He writes about religion, meditation, law, politics and is the founder of a number of LGBT organizations in the U.S. On Shtelt we’ll talk about the “erotic economy of traditional religious life”, LGBT activism and the B.D.S. movement.
And, Michael Wex (author of Born to Kvetch) wants you to help him translate a very old, very unexpectedly juicy Yiddish book.

Plus lotsa Jewish music to ease you into that Friday state of mind:

Shushan by Shye Ben Tzur, a tabla version of Kol Nidre by Nicolas Joliett, Eden by The Lakes of Canada, Nightmare by The John Cohen Experimental.

Thanks for tuning in!
