Maybe asking 4 a friend

Why didn't your friend ask himself, and say that he is asking for a friend?

Wouldn't a better solution for schools be to start an hour later, rather than have everyone change the clock?

Basically what you said isn't a joke.. and some war stories of Mashgiachim checking the mikvah and only finding one wet towel and 2 dry for 3 shochtim..

Do you think that someone who is hired on the condition that he go to mikvah every day, and does not, might have yiras shomayim issues?

Listen to the podcast, it shouldn't be too difficult to adopt Lichtenstein's opinion...

If they don't pay for the ticket I can just call and get new tickets issued which would cancel the one they got.

Can they do the same thing before you do?

I'm going to be interviewed by him tomorrow.
What topics should I bring up?

How did it go? Or are you under embargo?

I don't think that RYYJ records himself (except when he's taking for the purpose of recording) to this day.

I've heard (I think directly from him) that he practiced speaking by taping himself and listening to it, and redoing it until he was happy with the speech. (A modern version of the Friediker Rebbe's advice on learning Public Speaking)

Today a lot of his stuff (including farbrengens) are on his website.

Sounds amazing. What did y'all get me into  ???

It's not as bad as I (and others) may have made it sound, especially since he probably agrees with you on this stuff. I think he just sometimes forgets that the purpose of having guests on is to hear their point of view, especially when it is a topic he is passionate about.

2 things to be aware of.

1- he has a hard time staying objective and listening when he has a strong opinion about something. Usually when someone he disagrees with is on the show they get steamrolled, although I have heard people push back against his lack of objectivity, and when called out he tries to correct for it.

I assume he will agree with you on this specific issue, especially regarding the need for better education, but if the conversation goes to price mistakes or other aspects of "the game" he might give you a hard time.

2 - he is a billionaire (with a B), who has mentioned several times on his show that he heard from banks that are reluctant to work with him because of the impression they get of frum yidden from the newspapers. He holds those frum yidden who end up in the headlines responsible for that.

Just you or another panel ?

I don't think he does panels. He records 1 on 1 interviews with several people on the same subject.

You'd probably have better luck helping people by going on David Lichtenstein's headlines as part of a panel, discussing the cases.

Any volunteers to pitch this to him?

The halacha angle can be ribis and liability questions (and maybe include the credit Union question).
