Mahlah, Noah, Hoglah, Milkah, and Tirzah–Numbers 27

Liam shares the story of five sisters who appear in Numbers 27. Without any attachment to a male heir, they will end up desperately destitute that is of course until they lobby for their cause and end up changing Mosaic law. 

Peterson follows up with the “Other Text.” A reading from Gender Outlaws–The Next Generation. Peterson reads an excerpt from Kate Bornstein‘s introduction. 

In each episode of Bible Bash Podcast, Peterson, cisgender gay Bible scholar and co-host, Liam Michael Hooper, a trans Bible scholar, take turns presenting the text. They then discuss. In addition, each episode they present another text, a non-Biblical text of note–religious or secular–that may or may not correspond to the Bible text.
