Yael Steiner and Jonathan Schwab

Yael Steiner is a corporate attorney with a healthy passion for trivia and an (arguably) unhealthy passion for multiple professional football teams. Her eighth grade classmates predicted that she’d one day become a professional translator of Jewish texts and are not at all surprised that she now co-hosts a nerdy podcast. Jonathan Schwab is the Director of Student Life at Yeshiva University and splits his time equally thinking about the past, present, and future of Jewish identity. His twin children are avid listeners of the Jewish History Nerds podcast and are probably the only 6-year-olds who know about Shabtai Zvi and Hasdai ibn Shaprut.
