episode 500: Quincentenary Edition


In this week’s episode, the New York Times does an expose on Yeshiva education that the students probably couldn’t read, Christian teachers on Marsh’s side of the pond will find new ways to pretend to be persecuted, and we’ll talk about a cola that’s even worse than RC.
