In this week’s podcast, fill-in host Paul Berger is joined by Forward staff writer Josh Nathan-Kazis who is currently reporting from Florida on how the Jewish community of South Florida is seeing the impending presidential election. Then, Forward editor Jane Eisner drops by to discuss how some religious colleges are using federal money to fund religious, not technical studies.
