We're getting in the mood for matzo with a jam packed Passover episode.

We speak with New York Times food writer Melissa Clark about her Passover menu, which includes a new brisket recipe, and, later on in the week, matzo lasagna.

Paul Germain, the TV writer responsible for the Rugrats Passover episode, which aired in 1995 and offered a remarkable animated retelling of the story of Exodus, tells us about how that episode got made.

PLUS Cat Goldberg on 4/20 seders,  Gabriel Stulman on the Moroccan celebration of Mimouna,

And thanks to The Marshall Project's Simone Weichselbaum, disgraced former charity head William Rapfogel tells us about the time he threw a Seder behind bars.
