This podcast is not about Nice Jewish Girls. It’s about Jewish girls who are so much more than nice. It’s about journalists and authors, speechwriters and senators, prime ministers and rock stars. This podcast will redefine the way we see Jewish women—not as Jewish American Princesses, not as nags or klutzes, not as bossy or loud. As strong, as smart, as fearless. As Esthers, as Rachels, as Miriams. Every week, host Julia Jassey will be speaking to Jewish women who are breaking new ground and changing history.
For the past six years, Stephanie Butnick has been changing the Jewish community as one of the co-hosts of Unorthodox, the most popular Jewish podcast on iTunes. In this inaugural episode of Nice Jewish Girls, Julia speaks to Stephanie about how studying religion brought her to Jewish media, what particular Jewish culture is, how she found her voice as an editor, and podcaster, and how she became a strong, proud Jewish woman.
