    Bringing together Jews from all backgrounds
    I started listening to the podcast several years ago but I stopped because I found David the host to be a bit too shmaltzy and ruchani shmuchani! Post October 7 I found myself coming back to the podcast and very much connecting with David and his guests for much needed chizzuk and achdut. I have cried several times overcome by emotion from the stories told by David’s guests. The spiritual content that used to strike me as mawkish, now very much resonate with me, as our world has changed in the last year.

    Just gets better and better
    David Bashevkin is an extremely knowledgeable and devoted insider in the religious Jewish world. The content he puts out is unmatched for its honesty, fearlessness, insight, and compassion and care for his diverse listeners. This podcast is a treasure!

    Healthy Fresh Prospective
    18Fourty is the most real podcast out there. Dovis is personable, real, sensitive and balanced! However he is not afraid to ask the hard questions. Obviously in a respectful way! My only regret is I wish I had know about this podcast for longer!!!

The host, Dovid Bashevkin exhibits a remarkable understanding of his topics, presenting complex ideas in a clear and engaging way. Each episode is meticulously researched, offering a wide range of perspectives and insights. The podcast strikes a perfect balance between scholarly analysis and storytelling, making it accessible to both experts and newcomers alike. Overall, this podcast is a treasure trove of knowledge, providing an invaluable platform for intellectual growth and exploration into all aspects of Judaism. Thank you so much!!
  • chwydudn
    My go-to podcast to be enlightened
    1840 is an excellent podcast- Dbash chooses interesting subjects to interview and he doesn’t fit one mold within Judaism. His intelligence coupled with humor is refreshing.

    1840 puts words to your thoughts!

  • Laib S.
    Outstanding and sensitive,.. going into the Jewish GRAY!
    A show that had the guts with sensitivity to go where few Orthodox Jews will go ( today),… to help spread light to those area/topics that need healing today!!
  • Gillahn
    Thank you! I’m thoroughly enjoying the broad range of topics that are thoughtfully curated.
  • Gjdirbxisnwn
    I listen to podcasts all the time, and a friend of mine just sent me one on family estrangement and it was fabulous. Thorough with lots of information but be forewarned, you may cry at the end like I did. Thank you for the advice and thorough information on this topic! -Estee Stein

    So glad I was introduced to 1840
    I came to the podcast through Aliza Bulow who sent me her interviews with you. I am grateful to be able to listen to such intelligent thoughtful provocative discussions that are open minded , ask hard questions and offer thoughtful responses that widen my knowledge and world. Thank you so much. Looking forward to continued enlightened listening with you, Rabbi Bashevkin

    So Good It’s Past Words
    Every episode gives me a way to reconsider relationships in my life, with others and self and G-d. Unbelievable guests, raw honesty, and faces what others shy away from discussing. So glad this exists.
  • AppyRater

  • Miss Underst00d
    Excellent podcast
    Bashevkin’s excellent interviews with probing questions and interesting guests makes for an informative and entertaining listening experience. Not your Bubby’s podcast. So good I frequently listen than once.
  • Sara Rosenstein
    The episode with the bulows was wow!

  • Sarah Treice
    So Glad I Found This
    What a unique and awesome podcast! Rabbi Dovid is an amazing host, asking some really insightful questions and bringing up conversation that is fascinating and informative at the same time. His enthusiasm for his guests and their discussions is infectious. The show also dives in to really unique and wonderful topics. I was recommended the podcast by two different people in the same day which is what prompted me to listen to it and now I’m hooked as well.
  • gitzik
    Was not familiar with this podcast until tonight. April 2022 podcast was recommended. Blew me away. Rabbi Larry Rothwachs and Tzipora have an amazing story to tell. But I was very impressed with the interviewer, himself, who did an amazing job. I subscribed.
  • אחי!
    Rabbi bashefkin is brilliant!🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
    Love @dbash and everything he stands for keep it up 🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥🔥
  • Tali B-Monster
    Just wow.
    Really breathtaking. Moving. A must listen for anyone looking to build their religious identity in the modern world. ❤️🧡❤️

    Innovative Intersectionality
    It takes true creative boldness and courage to create a podcast that meets at the intersection of Judaism and the modern world/academia/any topic ever. The nuance in this podcast is on a top tier level like I’ve never seen before. As a common consumer of Jewish podcasts, this one satisfies my intellectual and emotional desires that I constantly look for in my podcast consumption, which I often find to be lacking in modern discourse. And, of course, it always gives me something to tweet about. THANK YOU!

    The ever creative dbash
    D bash does it again! Dovid has a way of bridging worlds and using different platforms to bring out the wide gamut of Torah ideas and Jewish living. I am excited for other projects he has in store for the frum community. Chazak vematz!
  • Marcelo the Brazilian
    Excellent, thought-provoking podcast about major ideas and how Judaism relates to them. Guests are engaging and knowledgeable, and the host does a great job bringing out their voices.
  • MR617:)
    Interesting topics and guests!
    I recently started listening to this podcast and like the range of topics and guests. It's recommended for those interested in intellectual and spiritual topics within Modern Orthodox Judaism.

    I really enjoy this podcast. R. Bashevkin is a very engaging speaker/interviewer and the conversations are always insightful and enjoyable. Topics are always interesting and timely.
  • 1dsiegs_spt
    Best podcast out there
    I cannot recommend this podcast enough!! R. Bashevkin provides an amazing resource for Jewish thought, philosophy and dialogue that is incredibly thought provoking. I really enjoyed the episodes with R Judah Mischel, Leah Forster and Zohar Atkins. This podcast has genuinely provided so much more depth to my spiritual and philosophical Judaism and has truly enhanced my daily commutes :). Each episode gets straight to the point and wastes no time providing knowledge to the listener. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • Alan from NY
    Great podcast!
    I love this podcast. I am constantly impressed by Bashevkin’s knowledge, intelligence and big-hearted respect for his interlocutors. I learn something whoever I listen and would even go as far as to say I come away a better person.
  • a. big. fan
    How can you give legitimacy to people who are off the derech and support and hope for people to do the same. I used to respect David Bashevkin and his work but after hearing some of these podcasts it’s disturbing how he could go ahead and preach about his religion and then show his support who forfeit it.
  • AryGur
    Incredibly valuable
    David Bashevkin is a dynamic host of a technically well-done podcast. The topics are wide-ranging and the guest selection is top-notch as well.
  • Carly Rickel

    Changing the Game
    Orthodox Judaism was in desperate need for a new medium to communicate the richness, complexity, and beauty of Torah, Jews, and God. Rabbi Bashevkin and the 18Forty team are doing that oh so successfully. I know Hashem is beaming, and I can tell you that I, too, love all the work you do. Thank you
  • Moshe Rechthand
    Truly an inspiration
    Such a great podcast, creative and inspiring content. Look forward to each release!
  • ZehavaKU
    Excellent podcast
    The 1840 podcast is one of the best podcasts I’ve ever listened to. The topics and guests are always interesting and Rabbi Dovid Bashevkin is an intelligent and thoughtful host. I am truly inspired by this podcast and look forward to a new one every week.
  • weber718
    Excellent learning opportunity
    I’m so impressed with the the host’s ability to weave the universal and the personal. His guests humanity and sensitivity allow for interviewees to be authentic and vulnerable. I’ve really have been moved and educated. Thank you!
  • Fry bagel
    Thought provoking and resonant
    I’m enjoying listening to the podcasts on family divergence. The conversations are well structured with thoughtful articulation of the issues that arise and the challenging give and take that occurs in challenging situations. I find this provides realistic and optimistic perspectives and methods to navigate the differences we encounter in life. Keep up the good work!
  • ZMBomb
    Thanks Dovid
    Consistently engaging and thoughtful content with superb guests. Listening to about a dozen episodes while driving round trip from NY to Orlando for Pesach made the trip enjoyable.
  • fabernetwork
    Thank you!
    I just listened to two special podcasts: one with Rabbi Penner and one with Rachelle Fraenkel. They were two of the most touching, and soul searching podcasts I’ve ever heard and they stand with the best in over 1000 podcast that I’ve listen to over the years.I look forward to being a new fan! Thank you Dovid Bashevkin.
