…and ‘sound effects’ are to be expected.
I can’t really call this episode a “frat party,” because all the participants are out of (or almost out of) college. On this episode of Yes, Brand, there was definitely a collegiate vibe to this sprawling interview, in which I sit down with a jeweler, a journalist, and a gentleman in the sushi business. The fact that two of these guys are my sons armed me with great background info and made for a very interesting experience for all involved.
First up is Aryeh Rephun, who at 23 has put in more work hours than most, all while going to Queens College. After completing a distinguished paid internship at Havas Media in New York City, Aryeh learned the ins and out of real estate in the Big Apple, earning his Series 7, before being wooed into the jewelry business (Jay Feder Jewelers), where he has worked for the past year. Here, we discuss the job opportunities he might have explored, if only there were more time in the day.
Menachem Rephun, 25, self-published his first novel, This Could Be The Day, earned a BA in Literature from Fairleigh Dickinson University, and embarked on a career in journalism, serving as a reporter and copy editor to underwrite his “Rick and Morty” spec-writing career. As a child, Menachem struggled to find an educational style that celebrated his gifts and disposition. He offers insight into what makes him the passionate young man he is today.
“J-Mann” (Jacob Mann), 24, of Simply Sushi, is a friend and neighbor of my sons, who both reside in Queens. I met him for the first time at Menachem’s apartment, and he was a welcome addition to the podcast!
