Keeping Jewish Weird™ is a podcast about all the odd, obscure, underrepresented, and unexplored corners of the Jewish world. Join hosts Eryn Black, Isaac Brickner, and a slew of awesome guests as they bring their unique perspectives to the complex subjects of Jewish history, culture, spirituality, and identity.
Welcome! You can get a sense of our podcast by listening to this short clip:
This episode we tackle a few controversial topics with our friend, human rights lawyer and religious leader, Monique Brumbach. We talk about what it means to be an ally to marginalized communities here in the United States, as well as white privilege, anti-Semitism, feminism, and Monique's international work fighting against gender-based violence by creating change for women who are uniquely vulnerable to exploitation as they seek asylum. We also learn a little about Monique's childhood growing up in New Orleans, Louisiana as a descendent of Holocaust survivors.

Eryn Black used to be a film student, the singer in a rock band, a slot machine technician, and a phlebotomist. It sounds like he used to have a really interesting life. Now, he lives in Manhattan with his family, and works for Jews for Jesus. He also really loves podcasts. Now he's on one.
Isaac likes talking about himself — as he writes this, he realizes it is especially fun to write about himself in the third person. He also likes hearing himself talk, so it was only a matter of time until he recorded a podcast so he could listen to himself all the time. Speaking of recording, he was an audio engineer/producer in his past life in L.A. He still lives in L.A. with his wife and two kids. He works with Jews for Jesus and operates an art space across the street from UCLA called Upside Down.
