Shabat Shalom, listeners!
Today on MP, we are joined once again by the enthralling Dr. James Rietveld, and are all the more enlightened by his lecture on Ancient Jewish Magic! Now before we actually -get- to the lecture, we spend a good minute catching up, opening presents, and getting side-tracked. Hope you like nerdy shenanigans, guys!
