The duo talk about Judaism and how Meow the Jewels came to be.

El-P and Killer Mike, also known as Run the Jewels, appeared today on the most recent episode of NPR’s comedy game show Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me.

Introduced as a duo who “fell harder for each other than the lead characters in La La Land”, the two are quizzed on, ahem, “who runs the Jews” and are tasked with questions about kosher sex and other rabbinical ephemera, like how wearing Crocs on the high holy days was banned back in 2009.

Check it out below. We all need a laugh today.
