Episode #6
Heather Dean
#MyUnorthodoxLife VS #MyOrthodoxLife
In this episode Heather and I are having a conversation around the Hashtag War between #MyUnorthodoxLife #MyOrthodoxLife that happened after Netflix aired the very controversial show My Unorthodox Life.

Heather Dean is an author and a professional interviewer who has left her Unorthodox life to chose to live the life of an Orthodox Jewish Woman. Which is exactly the opposite of my journey, and that's why we decided to take the Netflix show as an excuse to have a fascinating conversation around our life choices and why we are so happy that we have made them.

Through out this episode, you will learn so much about how television shows are produced and what is the incentive of producers to chose the stories that are going to keep you glued to your screen. But you will also hear 2 different perspective of what the Jewish Orthodox community is today, what we can do to improve it and how, at the end of the day, the only thing that matters is not WHAT life you live but HOW aligned you are with the life you have chosen for yourself.
Enjoy listening!
