IntroductionI was surprised to hear in the course of the 118th episode that there were fewer than 45 distilleries in the US just a decade and a half ago when the founders of KOVAL Distillery sought to enter into business(!). In talking with one of the co-founders, Dr. Sonat Birnecker Hart, I was impressed to hear about how they created not only the first distillery in Chicago since the 19th century, but also about getting legislation passed to make distilleries legal in Chicago and Illinois. Dr. Birnecker Hart shares not only about starting up the award-winning and kosher-certified distillery KOVAL, but also about being consulted by hundreds of people about getting their distilleries off the ground.Biography of GuestDr. Birnecker Hart co-founded the internationally award-winning distillery, KOVAL. As its president, she has spearheaded product development, distribution, and marketing. She also co-founded Kothe Distilling Technologies, a distillery start-up consulting firm. Prior to her distilling experience, she received her doctorate from University of London with her dissertation on “History through Humor: The Evocation of the Viennese Coffeehouse Society in Friedrich Torberg's ‘Tante Jolesch' Books, with particular Reference to the Problems of Assimilation and Anti-Semitism” (WorldCat link), she has spent over a decade as a full professor of Jewish Studies in both the United States and Germany, holding the Walter Benjamin Chair of German Jewish Cultural History at Humboldt University in Berlin. In 2008, she gave up tenure to co-found KOVAL. Dr. Birnecker Hart also currently serves as the Chair of the Steering Committee of the JDCorps.DisclosureDisclosure: Review samples of KOVAL whiskies and gins were provided to The Jewish Drinking Show for review purposes.Support the showThank you for listening!If you have any questions, suggestions, or more, feel free to reach out at Drew@JewishDrinking.coml'chaim!

Unearthed from the ruins of ancient cities in modern-day Iraq, the reconstruction of the epic from fragments of clay tablets has been a labour of love for scholars of ancient Mesopotamia. This painstaking work has brought to life a sophisticated story of adventure, heroism and friendship, as well as a reflection on the human condition. Today, experts are uncovering additional fragments of cuneiform script and using artificial intelligence to decipher the text and fill in the gaps of this and other stories. Professor Anmar Fadhil from the University of Baghdad tells the programme about the latest discoveries. Bridget Kendall is joined by Andrew George, Emeritus Professor of Babylonian at SOAS at the University of London and author of an acclaimed English translation of the epic; Professor Enrique Jiménez, chair of Ancient Near Eastern Literature at Ludwig-Maximilians University in Munich, Germany who has published widely on Babylonian literature of the first millennium BC; and Dr Louise Pryke, Honorary Associate in the Department of Classics and Ancient History at the University of Sydney in Australia who is the author of Gilgamesh, a guide to the epic which was published in 2019.

"Decolonisation, from the 1950s and 1970s, was quite simply the greatest multiplication of democratic power that the world has ever seen" Plus, we look at two big failures this month: the collapse of crypto exchange company FTX (secrecy jurisdictions, enablers, investigations...) the Tax Justice Network writes an open letter to alert the G20 to the failings of the OECD as global tax rule-setter, as they miss another deadline. A transcript of the podcast is available here: (Some is automated) https://taxjustice.net/wp-content/uploads/2022/11/The-Taxcast-transcript-Nov-22-1.pdf "The kind of loss of feeling of control in the United Kingdom, that loss of feeling of sovereignty, that loss of feeling of democratic accountability is connected to the erosion of sovereignty and erosion of democratic accountability that was allowed to happen to the former colonies of particularly the British Empire but all empires. What happens in the colonies doesn't simply stay there, but it comes back on the homeland and it starts to impact how its economy, its society, and its politics operates.

We find it easy to condemn wrongdoers, after they've been called out. But why do we often let unethical behavior occur around us, and not speak out? If we take a step back from the idea of there being one “bad apple”, we realize that with any wrongdoing, there is a collection of people who have been complicit in the behavior. Why is there so much fear about speaking up? “We've created too much fear in speaking up, when in fact, there's so much value in avoiding harm in that process.“ ~ Max Bazerman Our fascinating conversation with Max Bazerman aligns with the publication of his excellent new book, “Complicit: How We Enable the Unethical and How to Stop”. Our discussion is rich with insight, in particular we delve into the reason that we hold people, including ourselves, more responsible for errors of commission than omission. So how can we avoid errors of omission? Max Bazerman is a world famous behavioral scientist. He is the Jesse Isidor Straus Professor of Business Administration at the Harvard Business School and the Co-Director of the Center for Public Leadership at the Harvard Kennedy School. He is the author, co-author, or co-editor of twenty books and over 200 research articles and chapters. His awards include an honorary doctorate from the University of London and both the Distinguished Educator Award and the Distinguished Scholar Award from the Academy of Management.  Over the years, Max has brought focus to the areas of decision making and ethics.

The Grammy award-winning singer, songwriter and actress LeAnn Rimes joins us in the studio. Her unforgettable ballad "How Do I Live" holds the record as Billboard's Hot 100 all-time #1 hit by a female artist. She talks about the inspiration her latest album, God's Work. A woman who served in the Royal Navy for 20 years speaks for the first time about how she was raped and sexually assaulted during her career. The woman who we are calling Catherine says that when a senior colleague discovered she was pregnant, they suggested that an appointment be made for her to have an abortion. The Conservative MP Sarah Atherton serves on the Defence Select Committee, and led an inquiry last year into the experiences of women in the armed forces, which heard from 4200 women, including some 9% of women currently serving in the armed forces. The Atherton report found that 64% of female veterans and 58% of currently-serving women reported experiencing bullying, harassment or discrimination during their careers. She gives her response to Catherine's story. Lotte Wubben-Moy has become the latest women's football player to say she won't be watching the World Cup in Qatar, because of where it's being held and their stance on homosexuality and equal rights. Suzy Wrack from the Guardian tells us why women speaking out about this is so significant. Althea McNish was the first Caribbean designer to achieve international recognition and is one of the UK's most influential textile designers. There's currently a major retrospective of her, Althea McNish: Colour is Mine at the Whitworth in Manchester.

Always Bee learning, right? Yeah, cheesy I know, but I'm a dad. Anywho, today's guest, Lars Chittka, came on to chat about bees. I had no idea had little i knew about bees! Links from the show:* The Mind of a Bee* Killer Bee Queens - The Beekeeper's Dream* Subscribe to the newsletterAbout my guest:Lars Chittka is the founder of the Research Centre for Psychology at Queen Mary, University of London. He has been an Editor of Biology's leading open access journal PLoS Biology (IF=11.5) since 2004, and has also been on the Editorial Board of the venerable Proc Roy Soc Lond B (IF=5.4; 2010-2012) and the Quarterly Review of Biology (IF=7.7; 2004-2010); he is a member of the Faculty of 1000, and was an ERC Panel Chair (Consolidator Grants LS8, 2010-2013). Lars Chittka is a recipient of the Royal Society Wolfson Research Merit Award and an ERC Advanced Grant. He is also an elected Fellow of the Linnean Society (FLS) the Royal Entomological Society (FRES) as well as the Royal Society of Biology (FRSB). He received the Lesley Goodman Award of the Royal Entomological Society in 2006, with Dr. T. Doering. His current H-index is 88 (Google Scholar, Jun 2022)."Work in the Chittka lab is poised at the intersection between sensory physiology and learning psychology on the one hand, and evolutionary ecology on the other. Why do animals have the sensory systems they do? How do they use them in their natural foraging environment? How do cognitive-behavioural processes function in the economy of nature? Pollinator-plant interactions have been used as a model system to study these questions. Bees have been the organisms of choice in most of these studies, because their colonies can be easily kept, their experience can be readily controlled, they have a rich behavioural repertoire and amazing learning capacities. Members of the team have been particularly interested in mutual evolutionary and ecological influences of insect colour vision and flower colour signals, and insect learning and flower advertising. In addition, they have studied bee navigation, including the question of how bees use spatial memory to navigate among several rewarded sites. Recently, Chittka has also become interested in the evolution of cognitive capacities and communication, and the pollination biology of invasive species. Work in the Chittka lab has made use of field studies, as well as experimental studies with computer-controlled behavioural tests, computer simulations, and phylogenetic analyses. Many of Chittka's former PhD students and postdocs have moved on to become P.I.s at prestigious academic institutions. This is a public episode.

Each year, SS&C Intralinks partners with the M&A Research Centre (MARC), Bayes Business School at City, University of London, to evaluate the state of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) deal leaks. Leaking information about a transaction prior to announcement is illegal. While it can occur unintentionally, more often leaks are done on the sell-side to attract competing bids that will drive up the selling price or on the buy-side by a bidder who might have found risk during due diligence and does want to not have the deal go ahead. In this episode, we're joined by Dr. Valeriya Vitkova, a research fellow at MARC and one of the co-authors of the just published 2021 M&A deal leaks study. In this episode, Dr. Vitkova shares key findings from the research: • Volume of M&A deal leaks during 2021's record-breaking year for M&A • Deal value of leaked deals in 2021 vs. 2020 • Which regions and countries are “leakier” than others • Three surprising sectors with the most leaked deals Dealcast is presented by Mergermarket and SS&C Intralinks.

Rikke Bjerg Jensen: I am a Reader in the Information Security Group at Royal Holloway, University of London. I am a social scientist and ethnographer. My work explores information security needs, perspectives and practices among groups of people living and working at the margins of societies. It focuses on how technology, as it is shaped by social structures, relations and interactions, facilitates multiple security experiences and understandings. My work is thus grounded in research with and within distinct groups of people, engaging the often hidden, unvoiced and/or marginalised groups not generally considered in the design of technology. Most recently, I have worked with seafarers, refugees, migrants and protesters. ‘The margin' is thus loosely defined and can be understood in cultural, economic, geographical, occupational, social terms. Before becoming a Lecturer and now Reader in the Information Security Group, I was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Geography and Department of Law and Criminology, also at Royal Holloway. I obtained my PhD from the Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI), after having completed an MA in International Journalism. Both at the University of Westminster.

Dr. Ashley Sweetman works in cyber security for a London-based global bank and holds a PhD from the Department of War Studies at King's College London. While studying for his PhD he spent a short time as Researcher-in-Residence at No. 10 Downing Street while working for The Strand Group in the Policy Institute at King's. Before this, Ashley studied History at Queen Mary, University of London. Ashley is a proud Welshman and was brought up in Neath, South Wales. He currently lives in North London. In his first book Cyber and the City: Securing London's Banks in the Computer Age (Springer, 2022), Sweetman provides evidence that cyber security is a long-lived phenomenon. Banks started to worry about it early in the adoption of computers in the late 1950s. The UK has a particular feature where banks rapidly agree on the measures to be taken, making the overall system more resilient.  Sweetman uses a wealth of archival material and introduces de concepts of proportionality and the confidentiality-integrity-availability triumvirate to explain and interconnect the evolution and articulation of security in bank networks.  Bernardo Batiz-Lazo is currently straddling between Newcastle and Mexico City.
