This week we dive back into one of Sam’s favorite subjects, Jewish mysticism, by way of one of its most fascinating and unique phenomena, The Golem. The clay man, who serves as the supernatural protector of the downtrodden Jews throughout the Diaspora, has long captivated the imagination of the public. We trace it’s lineage through the Hebrew Bible, to the Talmud, and then examine it under the peculiar light of the dark ages and renaissance practices of Kabbalah. By the time we’re done, we cover everything from Quentin Tarantino to King David. We hope you’ll enjoy!
