Two Robs worth listening to
Our esteemed chief, the Jewish Journal’s Rob Eshman, will be featured on KPCC 89.3 FM this Thursday, May 8 during the station’s day-long programming in honor of Israel’s 60th anniversary.
His two-minute commentary on what Israel means to American Jews will air during Morning Edition and All Things Considered.
To listen, tune in to 89.3 FM or visit www.scpr.org for a live broadcast stream.
And if you think Rob is riveting in print, wait until you hear him on the radio!
The end is near, but have no fear, says Rob Kutner, a former Jewish Journal contributor who moved on to work for the Daily Show (where his wacky sense of humor was encouraged to flourish). Kutner’s new book, “Apocalypse How: Your Guide to Turning the End of Times into the Best of Times,” will be in bookstores on May 12.
The tongue-in-cheek self help book offers valuable advice on how to survive nine of the most likely world-ending scenarios and includes uplifting motivational slogans that’ll keep you going through alien invasions, zombie attacks or a nuclear war: “To the extent that you can see any of it through the permanent cloud of dust and ash, the sky’s the limit!”
Kutner will be reading and signing copies of his book at Book Soup in West Hollywood, May 13 at 7 p.m. For more info, visit www.apocalypsehowthebook.com.
