Sorry Not Sorry: Ep. 60
This week on Unorthodox, we’re gearing up for Yom Kippur with our second annual Apology episode. Marjorie Ingall, Unorthodox regular and co-founder of the website, tells us about the best and worst public apologies of the last year. We talk to Richard Cellini, the founder of the Georgetown Memory Project, and the force behind the university’s recent decision to grant preferential admissions to the descendants of the 272 slaves it sold in 1838 to save the school from financial default. We also speak with Dvorah Telushkin, mother of our co-producer Shira Telushkin and the Upper West Side's most obsessive apologizer. We hear a story about the tough conversations in which we ask for forgiveness from others—or ask others to ask for forgiveness from us—from ImmerseNYC founder Rabbi Sara Luria.This episode is brought to you by the new film Denial. From the screenwriter of The Hours and The Reader comes the true story of one woman’s court battle for historical truth against a Holocaust denier. Starring Rachel Weisz and Tom Wilkinson.Today’s episode is brought to you by Harry’s.
