Funny Jews gonna take all the blues away. Ronna & Beverly reveal the secret smell behind Don Draper’s mad success and Moshe Kasher tells us what it’s like to grow up with a Hassidic, hearing-impaired ba’aal tshevua dad.

Have you heard the one about the boy born in New York to two deaf Orthodox Jewish parents, who gets taken on a vacation to Oakland by his mother and ends up in and out of therapy, addicted to drugs, and becoming a criminal to feed his habit? Moshe Kasher’s memories of youth are dark, raw, hopeful and hilarious.
