In part 2 of our fascinating discussion on Jews and pop culture with journalist, writer, and co-host of the Bagel Report (@tbrthepod) @estherkustanowitz, we discuss “what makes a good representation of Jewishness?” and play “Cast... Away,” where this time we recast certain Jewish TV and film characters with actual Jewish actors. Link bio.
