The right conversation can be life-changing, especially when it involves learning from someone else’s choices, regrets, successes, and mistakes. Unfortunately, these kinds of profound, helpful conversations are hard to come by--you’re lucky if you have 2 or 3 of them as a young adult, and lots of people never even get to have a single one. Job Interviews is here to fill that void with honest, real, direct advice about school and careers from real people with real experiences. We conduct thor ...
 
My name is Rabbi Matt Schneeweiss. I am, first and foremost, an Orthodox Jew. My primary area of focus is the teachings of Shlomo ha'Melech (King Solomon) in Mishlei (Proverbs) and Koheles (Ecclesiastes). I also consider myself to be a student of the Stoic masters: Epictetus, Seneca, and Marcus Aurelius. Over the past two decades I have been exploring the relationship between Judaism and Stoicism - where they overlap, where they differ, and how they complement each other. This year I started ...
 
TORAH 101 is aptly described as “An Intellectual’s Introduction to Torah”. If you are a person who wants to understand the foundations of Torah in a logical and cogent fashion, if you don’t want to subsist with the juvenile perception of Torah of your youth, if you want to wrestle with the deeper questions of theology, eschatology, theodicy, and Jewish philosophy, TORAH 101 is the podcast for you. We will delve into the weighty topics in Jewish philosophy: the divinity of Torah: the interrel ...
 
I realize that for most of us it is extremely traumatic to fully grasp just how wrong this world has become. And that it is therefore much easier mentally and far more comforting psychologically to blame it all on the 'Left' or the 'Right'. But this podcast gives an interesting, thorough, and dispassionate analysis of just how and why we got to here from there. Further, by using established, mainstream science, it then presents a clear, complete, non-ideological picture of human behavior and ...
 
We are a couple of Illinois natives, lifelong friends, and lovers of all movies! We are thoroughly fascinated by the inner workings of movies, and we seem to gain some kind of insight out of every movie we watch(good or bad). We started five years ago in Peoria, Illinois, huddled around one microphone in my dining room, and now we live in Chicago and geek out about movies a few times a month. Check us out or get a hold of us to join us in the studio to talk shop with us on the air!
 
Podcast Channel of the United for the Messiah (Uni4M) Ministry. The main purpose of the Podcast will be to teach through the Bible book by book, chapter by chapter, verse by verse. We believe the Bible is a supernatural book given to us by God to reveal His plan of salvation, as well as to be a general manual to life. 2 Timothy 3:16-17: "All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of ...
 
The New Vague Review of Books is your thoroughly roughshod guide to the world of literature. Every episode we stumble through the topics that you’re curious about, in an ill-prepared and irreverent way that would make our old English lit teachers squirm a little bit. From Harry Potter to Infinite Jest, and everything in between; no book is out of our grasp. And look at that, we sort of know how to use a semi-colon. Sort of. Is there something you want us to discuss? Got a literary problem th ...

Frank Hu is a corporate lawyer with a bunch of certifications and responsibilities, which is surprising because through high school and college he wasn't really focused on any particular goal, and he wasn't interested in much besides gaming and hanging out with his friends. But at the urging of his parents, he figured out what was important to him—…

Too many of us have decided that our mission in life is to be happy and content. But instead of teaching you to find this mystical land of always happy, I want to teach you to be alive. So in today's episode, I share a new perspective on why having a contrast of emotion is so important. Learn why the concept of happiness could actually be robbing y…

Synopsis: In today’s episode I reflect on my own chipazon-ridden journey from Pesach 5780 to Pesach 5781 in light of a memento mori passage from Aurelius and a beautiful commentary of Sforno on the mitzvah of Rosh Chodesh. I hope the ideas and personal reflections I share prompt similar thoughts in you. If you’d like to share them with me, I would …
 
Nesha Zackery grew up around the Army Corps of Engineers, and was eager to enter FEMA so she could help out after disasters. But her negative experiences in the wake of Hurricane Katrina set her on a different path, allowing her to make an impact in ways she never foresaw. In this episode we talk about the Toastmasters, whether anyone is paying att…
 
Synopsis: I decided to record at least one episode commenting on the overlap between the Stoic and Jewish views on “true freedom.” We begin with an excerpt from Epictetus’s Discourses in which he addresses the complaint of the student who is interrupted in his studies by life’s obligations. We then read the Abravanel’s commentary on Chazal’s statem…
 
Synopsis: This episode is about how I decided to record an episode today by deciding not to record an episode today and thinking about my decision not to record an episode today. If you’d like to hear what my own neuroses sound like when filtered through the mesh of Stoic teachings, then this episode is for you. Also, this may or may not be the las…

Synopsis: In today’s episode we continue our exploration of the relationship between Judaism, Stoicism, and the teachings of the Jedi Order as depicted in George Lucas’s Star Wars. We focus on a single statement made by Obi-Wan Kenobi to Luke Skywalker in Return of the Jedi, which we examine in light of Seneca’s Letter #71, a famous Rashi on Devari…
 
Synopsis: In today’s episode we explore the relationship between Judaism, Stoicism, AND the Jedi Order. The YouTuber Pop Culture Detective produced a video essay entitled “The Case Against the Jedi Order” in which he raises a number of valid criticisms against the philosophy of the Jedi as depicted in George Lucas’s Star Wars movies and characteriz…
 
Synopsis: Today’s episode focuses on an unusual letter from Seneca in which he explains his motive for studying abstract philosophical questions about the universe. I was surprised that Seneca was even interested in such questions in the first place, but I was absolutely flabbergasted by the reason he gave for his interest in thinking about such qu…
 
Synopsis: Today’s episode should be regarded as a brief introduction to a much broader topic: the similarities and differences between the Stoic and Jewish approaches to tefilah (prayer). We examine sources from Seneca, Marcus Aurelius, and Epictetus – all of which are encapsulated in a single quotation attributed to Bruce Lee. In this episode I de…
 
Synopsis: Today is Friday, and you know what that means - it's another episode of TSJ Q&A! Here is today's question: "Based purely on listening to your podcast and listening to the teachings of the Stoic thinkers, it’s evident that they were rational thinkers who utilized analytical thinking in their philosophy. However, as you say in your podcast,…
 
I interview three of our Self Coaching Scholars coaches on what it’s like to do 20-minute coaching sessions and the different ways they’ve seen Scholars benefit from them. We talk about the power of sharing with a non-judgemental stranger, how we can create negative results without knowing it, and how to make the most of these 20 minutes. Get full …
 
Synopsis: Today’s episode was brought to you by Seneca and Starbucks. Thoughts of death amid the taste and aroma of Café Verona led me to ponder a line from “Our Town” and contrast it with a passage in the Meditations of Marcus Aurelius. As we’ll see, the point he makes has validity, but only up to a point. ---------- Aurelius – Meditations 6:13 Wh…
 
Synopsis: Today’s episode was inspired by a rather hostile reaction online to a #prequeltorahmeme I made which featured the word “rational.” In this episode we examine the manner in which Seneca, Epictetus, and Shlomo ha’Melech introduce their readers to the life of rationality, and discuss why it is, perhaps, the best method of making this introdu…
 
As a student, Kris Sharma officially wanted to be an international lawyer, mostly because he thought it sounded good. But a passion for writing, performing, and improv led him to take his chances in LA. Along the way, he discovered a talent for sales, got into law school but decided not to go, joined the Peace Corps… well, it’s a long story, and st…
 
Synopsis: In today’s episode we read a beautiful excerpt from a letter about on an old theme that Seneca is a master of eloquence: the fact that we do not know when we will die. After reading the letter I reflect on a very small example of how this came to mind recently. Be sure to stick around until after the usual outro, because I remembered one …
 
Synopsis: HAPPY MARCUS AURELIUS DAY! Oh, what’s that? You didn’t KNOW that March 8th in the year 161 is the day that Marcus Aurelius became emperor? No worries – neither did I! In honor of this day we’ll be taking a brief break from Seneca’s letters to examine a topic through the lenses of Marcus Aurelius, Richard Mitchell, and Rabbi Moskowitz. We’…
 
Synopsis: Today we're going to try an experiment ... The Stoic Jew Q&A! This experiment was suggested by my friend, Albert, and our first question was submitted (unknowingly) by another friend, Yoel Schaper, who asked me the question: "Are you a Stoic?" If you enjoy this episode, please send me more questions about the relationship between Stoicism…

In today’s episode, I break down what it means to desire something and how to understand what your true desires are deep down. Chances are, they’re similar to what a lot of us want. I also share what happens when you show up as a facade instead of your whole self, and how to start attracting people who desire you for exactly who you are. Get full s…
 
Synopsis: In today’s episode we read Seneca’s lengthy comparison of the dingy “old school” Roman baths to the “new” luxurious style, and the habits and aversions of the newer generation to that of the old. It feels like Seneca talking about our present circumstances, albeit with different particulars. And as difficult as it would be for a modern Ro…
 
Synopsis: Today’s episode was unplanned. I was feeling a bit emotionally raw on Tuesday night when I recorded this (for reasons I discuss on the podcast), and I decided to express what was on my mind and just let that take the episode wherever it went. ---------- Seneca – Letter #7 (conclusion) In order, however, that I may not today have learned e…

Synopsis: In today’s episode we discuss Seneca’s surprisingly hardline assertion that there is absolutely nothing that can be done to avoid blushing and other symptoms of stage fright. As a public speaking teacher, I take issue with this, and I support my opposition by citing some core teachings of Epictetus and Mishlei. If any of you have had succ…
 
Synopsis: We’re going to jump around a bit from letter to letter and topic to topic for the next couple of weeks. In today’s episode we read about Seneca’s reluctance to advise his student, Lucilius, from afar. The reasoning he provides is a core tenet of Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, which is the foundation of my approach to teaching. Over the course …
 
Synopsis: On Asarah ba’Teves, our most recent fast day, we read Seneca’s Letter #18 and examined the differences between the Stoic and Jewish views of fasting. In today’s episode we focus on the “on festivals” part of his letter, in which Seneca advises his student Lucilius on how the philosopher differentiates his own behavior from that of the dru…

Synopsis: In today’s episode we take a deeper dive into the letter we read yesterday, beginning with a reflection on a mistake often made by some Torah educators, including myself. We then follow up with a counterpoint (which I accidentally teased in yesterday’s episode) examining a topic in this week’s parashah – the aesthetic perfection of the Ko…
 
After college, Shirin Foroudi became disillusioned with the legal field. Through a couple of chance encounters, she was inspired to change career paths and become an English teacher in New York City. She went on to work in different capacities in several different programs, including KIPP and The New York City Teaching Fellows. Along the way, she h…
 
Synopsis: In today’s episode we begin a new letter in which Seneca warns his student Lucilius about becoming supercilious in his philosophical lifestyle and its external trappings. We compare Seneca’s advice to the guidelines for how a chacham (wise man) should be behave in the framework of kidush ha’shem (sanctifying God’s name) and in the framewo…
 
Synopsis: Today we celebrate our 100th episode! In this episode I reflect on the production of this podcast through the perspectives provided by Epictetus, Aurelius, Thoreau, and Rabbi Moskowitz. (And yes, Epictetus actually talks about what makes someone a good Stoic Jew.) Please take a couple of minutes to fill out this 5-question survey: https:/…
 
In today’s episode we wrap up this discussion of friendship with an excerpt from another letter about friendship. I reflect on some realizations I had about friendship during the pandemic in light of these ideas – realizations that ended up sounding less earth-shatteringly profound when I said them out loud than they seemed in my head when I hit re…
 
Three of my colleagues and I explore the life and accomplishments of Madam C.J. Walker - what the climate was like for dark-skinned Black women in the early 1900s, and all the obstacles she had the audacity to face. She didn’t just pave the way for women then, she is still a shining example of getting comfortable with other people’s discomfort, tru…
 
Seneca states that the fear of opening up to others often stems from the fear of opening up to oneself. The question we explore in this episode is: What is the effect of knowing that there is a Being to whom EVERY aspect of yourself is revealed? In other words, what is the psychological impact of the metaphysical fact of God’s omniscience? --------…
 
In today’s episode we take a deeper dive into Seneca’s advice about differentiating between trustworthy and untrustworthy friends. The question is: How do we know which is which? We examine one answer based on Rabbeinu Yonah’s interpretation of a pasuk in Mishlei, and the idea we learn from this pasuk sheds light on a distinction made by the Rambam…
 
In today’s episode we begin a new letter on a topic we haven’t explored before: friendship. We compare Seneca’s criteria for real friends vs. fake friends with the Rambam’s broader criteria, as stated in his commentary on Pirkei Avos. Which classification of friends do you agree with more? ---------- Sources: - Click here to access the full text of…
 
Synopsis: Since today is George Washington’s Birthday (a.k.a. Presidents Day) I thought it would be fun to take up the question: Was George Washington a Stoic? The answer is clear not only from biographical accounts but from the way he lived. Additionally, one of the two “non-platitudinous” eulogies given at the time of his death (according to biog…
