Live From the UK – Episode 27.3 is here!

Here it is! The big one! In episode 27.3 of OMGWTFBIBLE, David Tuchman and Rachel Rose Reid read what everyone knows as The Ten Commandments. And it’s… interesting. Sure, the commandments themselves are pretty impressive, but the laws that follow them? Not so much. And are there even really 10 commandments? It all depends on how you break it down. Listen to the third part of “Yitro” here!

Live From the UK – Episode 27.2 is here!

In episode 27.2, David is joined by Rabbi Leah Jordan to read the second third of Parshat “Yitro.” Sadly, not much happens this week plot-wise. God spends most of it repeating the same directions over and over, preparing the people to receive his all-important law. But that doesn’t mean David and Rabbi Jordan don’t have a lot of fun dissecting all the goofiness—and discussing Judaism, God, the Reform movement in the U.K. and the U.S., growing up in Kansas City, and much more.

Live From the UK – Episode 27.1 is here!

Well, pip-pip cheerio! Back in December, David Tuchman went to the Limmud UK conference at the University of Warwick in England to record OMGWTFBIBLE with a slew of wonderful guests and did his best to avoid doing his terrible British accents on tape.

This time around, in episode 27.1, David is joined by Kevin Sefton, Limmud chair. Together, they read the first third of Parshat “Yitro,” what in the world Limmud is, why in the world Yitro pops in for this little story and never appears again, and whether his legacy was worth it.

I’m in England!

It’s Sunday, right? I just took a red-eye flight from New York to the Limmud Conference at the University of Warwick in England and I have no idea what time it is. Or what day it is.

No matter what’s going on, I’m currently at Limmud and I’m doing a show tonight. And tomorrow night. And the night after. And all three of those episodes will be hitting the Internet starting next Thursday (1/8).

Now I’m gonna go take a nap.

Episode 26.3 is here!

This is episode 26.3 of OMGWTFBIBLE, featuring David Tuchman and Michael Schreiber—the last OMGWTFBIBLE in the U.S. for 2014. This time around, God responds to the Israelites’ “whining” by throwing food at them. As gods do. And we learned that Marx totally plagiarized the whole “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need” schtick from the Torah.

Also, in this final piece of episode 26, David finally responds to all those religious guests who refuse to say God’s name. And Michael lets David know what he really thinks about the show. Listen to it all here!

Episode 26.2 is here!

Here it is! The big massive, water-filled set piece! One of the last action scenes in the Bible for a very long time! God murdering so many people! It’s all in episode 26.2 of OMGWTFBIBLE, featuring David Tuchman and Michael Schreiber.

This is the big event God’s been prepping for centuries. It all goes down this week. But more importantly, Michael and David explore a problem with the casting of Christian Bale as Moses that hasn’t come up elsewhere. What’s the problem? Who would they cast? Listen to it all here!

Episode 26.1 is here!

Have you ever set a plan in motion and slowly watched as the pieces move into place? Did that plan involve pretty much murdering a country’s entire army in cold blood? If so, you’re just like Yehovah in episode 26.1 of OMGWTFBIBLE, preparing the Reed Sea for his planned drowning of the Egyptians.

This time around in David Tuchman’s new translation of the Hebrew Bible as a comedy, he’s joined by Michael Schreiber as they read “Beshalach,” the fourth portion in the book of Exodus. The Reed Sea is about to divided into two sides and Michael has a lot to say about the forces that are dividing the Jewish community. Listen to it all here!
