The Bottle Episode: Ep. 59

Rosh Hashanah has us feeling reflective, so we decided to put together a special mini-episode for the Jewish New Year, featuring stories of new beginnings from our hosts. Mark Oppenheimer discusses how a failure his freshman year in college forced him to rethink his priorities and get a new life, Stephanie Butnick describes the freedom of a semester abroad, and Liel Leibovitz tells an old Hasidic tale of how to talk to God in the Days of Awe.

We'll be back next Thursday with a full-length episode—a special Yom Kippur show dedicated to apologies. You can listen to last year's apology show here.
