Ronna & Beverly wish you the happiest of Passovers. Now please pass the Cadbury Mini Eggs.

Hey, pals!

A few days before Passover, Ronna Glickman and Beverly Ginsburg — hosts of the podcast Ronna & Beverly — dropped by Big Listen HQ to chat about their show, their book (You’ll Do A Little Better Next Time: A Guide to Marriage and Re-marriage for Jewish Singles) and their decades-long friendship. They also talked about Liam Neeson, Canadian geography and Lauren’s poor choice of undergarments, though none of those were topics they actually planned on discussing.

There was so much great material that we couldn’t bear to leave any of it on the cutting room floor. Soooo, just in time for Pesach, we bring you the Ronna & Beverly Passover Special! It’s time to celebrate the Jewish people’s exodus from Egypt and liberation from the bonds of slavery. Now, set a place for Elijah, down your four cups of wine and have a listen to America’s favorite middle-aged Jewish singles.

Shalom!

N.B. — Ronna and Beverly are NOT real people. They are the creations of Los Angeles-based comedians Jessica Chaffin and Jamie Denbo. We cannot be held responsible for their outrageous behavior.
