    By Rob Eshman

    You could just tell there was a mind meld between Howard and Mayim Bialik when she appeared on his show Feb. 25 (I just heard it on replay. Love that Sirius app).

    This is what's so remarkable about Howard. His show pivoted from a deep discussion with Mayim to a very in-depth rundown of this year's Anatomy Awards, handed out by a web site named MrSkin.com to best portrayals of female nudity in current film and TV. (In that spirit the list of Jewish Anatomy Award winners below after the audio-- kvell away).

    Mayim, turns out, is a big Howard Stern fan. She tweeted that her appearance was a career highlight, and you can hear it in her voice, she was pumped.

    You could also hear in Howard's voice just how into her he was: two very smart Jews, both veteran wrestlers with tradition, with overhearing Jewish mothers, with societal expectations, with the Industry. When Howard nailed Mayim's mother reaction to her divorce, I felt like I was crashing their group therapy.

    The Howard of 10 years ago would have ridiculed Mayim for her beliefs-- strict veganism, attachment parenting, no diapers-- but the new Howard is himself much more of an explorer. He doesn't eat meat, except for fish, he follows a healthy lifestyle (who didn't buy Dr. David Agus' book after hearing Howard's interview?). Rather than just going for cheap ridicule, he pushed and probed at Mayim's beliefs, challenging but not demeaning. And Mayim-- one of those rare Howard guests who is as sharp as the host-- was more than up to the challenge. There was almost a father-daughter Jewish dinner table dynamic going on (if your dinner table were miked and your daughter had a PhD in neuroscience).

    Mayim's explanation of her Jewish tradition was as succinct and thoughtful a pitch for identity and tradition in a secular world as you could hear. The fact that millions of people heard it-- it just makes a brilliant case.

    My favorite throwaway moment? Listen below to the part where she talks about being a vegan, and she tosses in that she can eat "meatless cholent." How many listeners could have caught that one?

    I listened to about half of it and caught Dr. Agus in a few falsehoods, ignorant statements, or misinterpretations of studies. The guy apparently has no clue about causation vs correlation.

    I'm letting the wife know in the morning that I'm going to follow my passion and become a full time thinker.
    She better get her shit together. The monthly nut isn't going to pay itself.
