Foreskin man fights Monster Mohel.

Luke Burbank is back for his weekly conversation with Madeleine about what is both awesome and not awesome. Intactivists, or people who want to make circumcision illegal, have pushed to pass legislation in San Francisco. But, the real news maker is the comic that they put out titled Foreskin Man and its anti semitic representation of a Mohel. Also in the news, the Scripps National Spelling Bee has taken the country by storm once again. But, are the young contestants throwing away their childhoods? Will the skills they gain translate to any usable life skills?

Luke is the host of the podcast Too Beautiful to Live.
