Jewish sex chats
Host and Washington local Nahanni Rous explores topics like the way women’s voices sound (with NPR’s iconic voiced Susan Stamberg), the Jewish love for mah-jongg, the Women of the Wall group and Jewish hair. This comedy duo who call themselves “America’s favorite Jewish mothers” are actually characters portrayed by real-life comedians Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo.
Their Jewish mother alter egos are longtime friends in their 50s and coauthors of “You’ll Do Better Next Time: A Guide to Marriage and Re-marriage for Jewish Singles.” This is their chat show podcast where they kvetch, kibitz and talk to — and interrupt — their pop culture guests like Rachel Dratch, America Ferrera, Eugene Mirman and Rachel Bloom, among others.
SALT LAKE CITY — It didn’t take long for Michael Feldman to realize he wasn’t in New Jersey anymore. Tony Soprano would shoot me if I went into Olive Garden.” Luckily, Feldman has found some good Italian spots since then.
The owner of Feldman’s Deli remembers when he moved to Salt Lake City. He and his wife, Janet, wanted some classic East Coast Italian food — the mom-and-pop stuff they grew up with — and asked his assistant where to go. (More on that later.) He’s also brought authentic East Coast Jewish deli food — Reuben sandwiches, corned beef, gefilte fish, bagels with lox and schmear — back to Salt Lake after it was largely absent for decades.
This is the “This American Life” of Israel, taking in-depth stories of, about and for Israel.
Hosted by Mishy Harman, “Israel Story” delves into different facets of life in Israel.

Think of just about any topic and there’s a good chance there’s a podcast on it.
From the podcast institutions like “This American Life,” “Serial,” ”Welcome to Night Vale” and anything NPR does to more niche shows about deep dives into country music, an exploration of Baltimore’s history through the lens of its black residents or hour-long analyses of each episode of “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” podcasts are an increasingly popular form of news, entertainment, history and information. “The Joy of Text” takes on sexuality with from an Orthodox perspective. Bat Sheva Marcus, it dives into conversations with both rabbinic and medical experts.
Feldman sat down with the Deseret News, telling us about a deli’s place in Jewish culture, the food he’s most proud of and why he thinks Feldman’s has been so successful.
Decades before Feldman arrived in Salt Lake, there was Lu Dornbush Delicatessen, a downtown Jewish deli that Lu Dornbush, a Holocaust survivor, owned and operated from the 1950s through the 1970s.
