I was recently interviewed by Steven Shalowitz for “The One Way Ticket Show” where I discussed the etymology of the word “quarantine” as well as an interesting Italian Seder tradition. While this was the third time I had met Steven, it was the first time that our discussion had to be conducted virtually while each of us sheltered in our own New York City apartments. We had to figure out a few things technically but in the end we were successful!

In a recent interview by Steven Shalowitz for his podcast The One Way Ticket Show, I was asked the following question: “If I gave you a one-way ticket, past, present, future, real, imaginary or state of mind, where would you go?” (Remember — there’s no coming back!)
Putting aside the fact that by going back in time I would be giving up some of the great discoveries in medicine, technology, and advancements in human rights, I chose to go back to the Golden Age of the Ottoman Empire under Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent in the mid 1500s. (I had briefly considered the golden age of Jewish culture in Spain in the 8th and 9th centuries, but decided I didn’t want to be stuck there once the Inquisitions began.)
