#15 Freedom through Words - Intro to Pesach (Passover)

This episode is an overview of Passover - what is being celebrated, why, and how.

We discuss the oddly universal celebration of our little nation's holiday commemorating its emancipation, the themes and imagery of the holiday, and we go back to place issues discussed in Episode 12b (freedom and liberty) in the Passover milieu.

Ultimately, this is a fantastic overview of the holiday's ubiquitous insistence on freedom through words. We discover a little bit of what that means, and set the stage for the coming episodes - where we will explore the Haggadah in depth and inside.

Holy Madness - The Show
The Holy Madness sifts through the mad world seeking wisdom. We tackle far-ranging heavy subjects with a light touch and “pharismanic” flair.

Alas, the sun has set on the show, and we are not making new episodes. Fans came for the provocative conversation, stayed for the contrarian conclusions, and enjoyed loads of holy madness in-between. And we loved the community that developed around the show.

Whether you're listening again, or discovering the show for the first time: be well and be blessed.

Everything is fascinating. Everything is uncertain. Everything is wearisome.
I'm done with "quiet desperation," I'll talk desperation with everyone.
Sift through the madness, cut through the BS, get a little freer, repeat.
For the love of God. There's nothing else. This is the whole Adam.
