Episode 52 of HatRadio! is with David Matlow, the world's biggest collector of Theodore Herzl memorabilia. Herzl is considered the father of Zionism and the visionary for the State of Israel. The idea that someone is the 'biggest' or 'the best' in pretty much anything, has always blown me away. I've had the honor of interviewing Clive Caldwell who was once seeded #1 in the world, in squash doubles/#2 in singles. Recently, I schmoozed with David Shore, the creator/writer of the shows 'House' and 'The Good Doctor'. They are brilliant and at the top of their game. In essence, these guys have stood a the top of the mountain (although they won't say they have. They are humble) and know they can mostly look no higher. David Matlow is like that. You'll hear it in his voice and how he articulates  his narrative and his emulation of Theodore Herzl (David will frequently ask himself, 'what would Theodore do'). David tells a highly compelling story about securing his collection, sharing it, and anti-Semitism then and now. But mostly what you'll learn from episode 52, is how one man's appreciation, gratitude and respect in 2020 of another man from 1900, highlights an important continuum of hope and the pursuit and actualization of a dream, in our world. It's a wonderful interview. HatRadio! The show that schmoozes.
