In this week’s episode: Genesis 36-39.  We examine the story of Tamar, the daughter-in-law/baby mama of Yehuda who uses the whore’s veils to accomplish a neat trick.  And we will also explore the fifth iteration of sibling rivalry in Genesis between Yosef, his coat of many colours and his brothers – which results in some violence, enslavement and yet another ruse.  In short, any scream will do.
