Special Edition: Owl Post and Rabbi Scott Perlo (Again!)

Vanessa is still recovering from her surgery, so Casper is taking over our owl post episode this week. We hear from listeners Laurie Stevens, Kate McManus, Talya Sarna and Eva Resnick-Day. Laurie and Kate respond to Casper's question about the importance of libraries, Talya shares some Jewish thoughts on around pregnancy, and Kate recounts how she got her 15 minutes of national fame. 

Casper also has the opportunity to chat with our old friend, the brilliant Rabbi Scott Perlo, about the 'canon' of sacred texts and how ideas of canon play out in the Jewish tradition. Next week, we'll be reading Chapter 31, The Third Task, through the theme of kindness.
