Dr. Weizfeld identifies as an “Orthodox Jewish Agnostic”. I met him about 20 years ago. Part of the year he chooses to live in the West Bank in a city called Nablus, which is the location of the very important Old Testament city of Shechem. He has a PhD in Political Science.
My first encounter with Dan was listening to his “Just an Immigrant” show on CKUT in 1994. Five years later I met him when he bought some of my psychedelic painted vinyl records. We became friends instantly.
Ivan is an old friend from the neighbourhood. His energy is infectious and I knew he’d have a lot to say. He didn’t disappoint. I only wish he could have stayed to chat a little longer. Next time.
Anthony is a good friend. We discuss religion and philosophy all the time, so this is nothing new. I appreciate that even though he doesn’t agree with me on everything, he listens to me–and defends my controversial faith when he can.
