Before I post another word, don’t miss this Monday’s Skeptics in the Pub with Dave Niose (see two posts down for details).

And now – better late than never – video of Jonathan McDowell and last month’s BSitP of those who missed it (or want to see it again). Sorry for the delay. It’s not exactly as I’d intended, but… oh, I’ll shut up now. Here’s Jonathan!

Video: BSitP with Joshie Berger – June 17th, 2011

Or view at BS Channel on Vimeo

The sacred and the profane meet as Joshie Berger talks about why Hasidic Judaism pisses him off and why it should piss you off too. Most people will know Joshie from Worst Cooks in America, but you may not know that he grew up a Hasidic Jew and entered an arranged marriage.

Warning: Contains Lots of Very Strong Language. You have been warned. ;)

Happy Holidays! Sorry for the sad little Charlie Brown audio track. I didn’t haul out all the gear this time due to the snow. But that just means you get to hear how much fun we had in the background!

Video: Marian Call – “Dark Dark Eyes”

Posted on : 06-11-2010 | By : maggie | In : Skeptics in the Pub, video


The Nov. 1st show with Marian Call was absolutely incredible. We had a comfortably full house, a great audience and I think we can safely say that Marian and guitarist Scott Barkan had a great time themselves.

For those of you who couldn’t make it (and those who can’t wait to see it again) here’s sneak-peek at what’s to come. Maggie is editing together the whole show (minus the really new songs, which she’ll post later once Marian gives the OK) but this one’s going to be special (and was a two-camera shoot) so it will take a little longer. So to tide you over, here’s a video of “Dark Dark Eyes”. Enjoy! And thank you SO much, Marian. You are awesome.
