The Schlep to the Brisket

Those of us at the Anne Levine Show responsible for making sure that the latest episodes of the show are made readily available for download or listening to online (Michael) would like to apologize for this particular show’s tardiness. What with tornadoes, traffic, and traveling great distances, it seems he lost his mind and totally neglected to put this one up when he was supposed to. He has been properly chastised and as a result, here’s the show: The Schlep to the Brisket follows Anne, Michael and Vinny as they travel by car to a Passover Seder in Sarasota, Florida. Enjoy listening to monumental traffic, paralyzing rain storms and get a first hand report of the recent tornadoes in the Carolinas. Also, there’s some brisket.
