Review of Passover candy - an audio tour of a Lower East Side candy store

This podcast installment is an entertaining visit with your basic New York character, candy man Jerry Cohen. He's engaging and a bit crusty, blithely undermining the focus of the piece by saying he doesn't like Passover candy--though he eats candy all day and loves eating the ears of broken chocolate Easter bunnies. Host Blake Eskin does a nice job as the curious, good-natured straight man. Nicely produced, a quality production.
