So excited to announce the release of this brand new podcast, The Yentas! This podcast goes far beyond your average dating advice. Here you get THREE powerhouse matchmakers — Aleeza Ben Shalom (from Jewish Matchmaking on Netflix), Michal Naisteter and Danielle Selber — who address the challenges of dating in real time.
Each episode is jam packed with the best stuff
- Latest insights on dating trends and topics
- Actionable advice you can use right away
- Real-life experiences from people navigating dating right now
- Our clients’ success stories and challenges
- Special guest experts
In every episode, we will take a question from a real person who is navigating dating right now. Then we’ll YENTA… about it.
Once upon a time (shh, we are so not telling you how many years ago), Aleeza, Danielle and Michal met at a coffee shop in Philadelphia (RIP Trail’s End Cafe — we will forever remember the scent of your bold roast!) That meet-up blossomed into years of friendship, collaboration, and support as we each embarked on our shared mission of helping people align within themselves and find what and who they are looking for. Today, we are all successful, professional matchmakers. We STILL meet, collaborate and support each other… and now, we can add podcast co-hosts to that list!
So what about the name of this podcast — The Yentas? That word, Yenta, can be a bit loaded, no? Maybe you saw Fiddler on the Roof, where the word is associated with being a busybody — to this day, the word can carry a negative, gossipy connotation. So why did we decide to push against all that and reclaim Yenta as the namesake for our podcast? Listen to Episode 1 to find out!
And while we’re at it, we’ve also decided to coin yenta as a verb. This podcast is all about yenta-ing about dating, courtship, love and relationships! See what we did there?
Consider this podcast an invitation to that weekly chat at the coffee shop where we started all those years ago. Come on in, take a seat! We can’t wait to yenta with you.
