Call Your Grandmother

If 2020 proved anything, it's that EVERYONE needs a Jewish grandmother. You know-- a sassy woman who's lived to the fullest, has the best advice for you and wants nothing more than to fix you up, spoil you with love... and send you home with more than just some matzo ball soup! Our Hosts Rita and Ellin introduce you to some less-than traditional Jewish grandmothers and the unbreakable bond they have with their favorite grandchildren. Each episode creates a time capsule of a certain era - long before television and online dating - overflowing with nostalgia and heart-warming stories of the boundless love they have for their families. These grandmothers will keep you laughing, commiserating, and leaving you desperate to call YOUR grandmother.
