So Listen to Our Yiddish Show, Already!

You may not speak Yiddish, but if you've ever schmoozed, or called someone a klutz, or kibitzed about something while noshing, then you know at least a bissel -- that is, "a little."

We had a blast with this week's show, which features my interview with Yiddish translator Michael Wex, author of Born to Kvetch: Yiddish Language and Culture in All Its Moods -- a book that's very funny but also intellectually chewy and enlightening. Check out Wex's website, scroll halfway down, then come back and tell me: Who says word nerds aren't sexy?

Some people will post all sorts of meshugana pictures on the net! But I don't know from sexy so who am I to say?
