Who The Folk?! Noam Sienna

Why, in the midst of working on your doctorate dissertation, would you go and write a book that has nothing to do with your dissertation topic? That’s a question Noam Sienna wrestled with, but nonetheless went ahead and did it anyway. Noam talks about his book A Rainbow Thread: An Anthology of Queer Jewish Texts from the First Century to 1969, why he wrote it, some fascinating stories he learned in the research, and what’s next after he finishes his Ph.D. next year, on this week’s Who The Folk?! Podcast.

Normally you can read an excerpt, but one for this week is unavailable due to unforeseen technical issues. You can listen to the podcast below, or subscribe to the Podcast on Apple Podcasts, Google Play, and Stitcher, with more to come later soon. Please subscribe, rate, and review. And of course, if you have suggestions of others who would be great subjects, let us know!
