The 200th Episode
This week on Unorthodox, we’re celebrating all the Jewish holidays, including reaching our 200th episode! We talk to a gematria expert to find out just what the number 200 symbolizes in Jewish numerology, and hear some words of wisdom from our boss, Alana Newhouse.
Our first guest is Jodi Kantor, co-author of the new book She Said, which details the allegations of sexual misconduct against Harvey Weinstein first reported on by Jodi and Megan Twohey in The New York Times in 2017. She talks to Stephanie about the process of reporting such a complex story, first for The New York Times and then for this book, and the roles that people like Jill Kargman and Gwyneth Paltrow played throughout the process. She also explains why the Weinstein story is fundamentally not a Jewish story, despite the fact that several of the main characters, including Weinstein, are Jewish.
