  • About Steve Brizel


    1. I very much appreciate what you do each week to compile this list, but please go back to including a majority of text links. Unlike audio links, they can be skimmed easily and quickly. (You have more than twice as many audio links this week as text links.)


    2. I second LI Reader, mostly because the audio links aren’t much use on Shabbos, which is when I have a chance to process this stuff. Thanks for your work on this!
