Welcome to the 50th episode of HatRadio! with special guest, David Shore, the creator/writer of the shows: House and The Good Doctor. We start things off with a 26-minute monologue reviewing highlights of HatRadio!'s first year, as well as some encouragement about strengthening our world, and fighting Antisemitism and racism, through positive and complimentary actions with other individuals. The interview with David Shore is truly fascinating. It is because, David, the greatest TV writer in the world today, speaks in philosophical and meaningful terms about his life and career. He states clearly about writing scripts, "it seems pointless to just entertain" and adds, "I do like to exploring ethical question." His scripts have purpose. He thinks a lot about morality and shares hard questions with the viewerHave a listen to this highly successful man from London, Ontario. He's very thankful for his success and gifts in life, and it's clear from our schmooze, like many great men, he simply does not see himself as such - true humility. HatRadio! The show that schmoozes. HAPPY NEW YEAR. PEACE IN OUR WORLD.  (This show is in memory of Sarah Halimi, a French Jewish woman murdered by a man who won't stand trial because of his marijuana intake. Fight this).

Welcome to Episode 49 of HatRadio! with our special guest, Rabbi Benjamin Hecht of nishma.org. Benjy is a brilliant Torah scholar, and my brother-in-law. He has helped me and thousands of others with our existential struggles. In a world of 'I'm right, you're wrong and therefore you'll go to hell', Rabbi Hecht's appreciation of a wide spectrum of possibilities - e'lu ve'elu - within a halachic framework’ allowed me and so many others to spiritually breathe.  In short, Rabbi Hecht helps thinkers find a home. He believes, “God wants us to think, to grow". Please learn from his personal struggles including that of being a Holocaust Survivor's child, and his evolution from "going with the masses" to finding his own voice. If you're annoyed by fundamentalism, and those who make fun of thinking, have a listen. Rabbi Hecht's is a thinking spiritual rock-star!  HatRadio! The show that schmoozes

EPISODE 48 HATRADIO! 

Randall Craig was diagnosed with the ‘bad’ type of leukemia.  His friends moved a digital piano into his room... and so he started writing a musical - a modern take on the story of Esther. The first song Randall wrote was in his hospital bed right after chemo. His message is, ‘we can all be an Esther’ - courageous with the ability to change the world.  His mind is sharp. He is incredibly excited about life with an inimitable spirit; the type God or man cannot keep down. Listen for the ‘Peanut butter’ story. He wakes up every day and with gusto says, “oh, another great day!”. He can't wait to live it. This is a very sweet and inspiring interview. Have a listen. HatRadio! The show that schmoozes.

Thank you so much to Howard for his post-production work. I'm grateful. He has helped the podcast a lot since its inception and we have such a good time on Thursday nights during post-production. A pat on the back to my buddy, David Nefesh for the HatRadio! song. What better person to ask to write and perform it then David, my friend since we're 8 years old? I'm also appreciative to Stephanie Kazdan for the HatRadio! poster and IrisMedia, in particular, Jimmy for being so supportive of my objective to bring positive podcasting to our world. Thank you folks!! Life is a community.

We walk through life concentrating on our own stuff. That's inevitable. Then, one day, we see the person next to us, really see them, and realize their life is as significant as ours’s, that an inherent balance exists between us, which translates into equality of all peoples.

When I schmoozed with Michael Rubin on Segment 47 of HatRadio! I was able to see that life-parallelism or sorts. Why? Well because Michael - the Spiritual Director at Beth David Synagogue, once a field-educator (tour guide) in Israel and a hockey player and coach for one of Israel's nation team, a dad and husband - talked about these chapters in his life with great humility and modesty, I felt compelled to tuck my ego away and embrace his beautiful spirit. And I did. And he moved me. Listen to Michael talk about visiting Israel for the first time, kneeling on the tarmac and kissing the ground. Hear his insight into the trope (Torah notes), as sounds that reflect significant instances in the 5-books of Moses. Michael loves the dessert and sees no need to meditate there, because it is 'a meditative environment'. My guest is an inspiring man. He is an appreciative man.  Listen and see him, and then perhaps, you'll really see the person walking next to you. HatRadio! The show that schmoozes.
