84 — Shelach: Historical Hotties and Horrible Hebrews
Show Notes

This week, we discuss a sex worker who hangs out with a king, extremely inconsiderate invaders, and the vibes of different names. Plus serious dilemmas of moral relativity, words that mean "red," and overly horny Talmudic rabbis. We had to mark it explicit because the text is sexually explicit; it's not our fault.

Transcript here.

Here's Austin Walker's old tumblr blog clockworkworlds and his current work on the podcast Friends at the Table. You can also check out The Objective and follow it on Twitter @ObjectiveJrn ; it's run by Jaz's friend Gabe Schneider, who you can follow on Twitter @gabemschneider. You can check out the Christian fiction podcast Forgive Me! if you're interested in that sort of thing; Jaz listened to the whole thing, and is still not sure if they'd recommend it or not.  Here's a bit about Rachav from the Talmud, in Zevachim 116b and another one from Megillah 15b.

This week's reading is Joshua 2:1-24. Next week's reading is Samuel I 11:14–12:22.
