Synopsis: This is the audio version of the 1-page article I wrote entitled, The Role of Episodic Memory in the Three Weeks and Tishah b'Av, in which I attempt to articulate the current framework I'm working with as we enter into the three weeks this year. For the sake of convenience, here are the links to the audio versions of the six articles I reference.

- EFT (Episodic Future Thinking) A Summer 2022 Project
Judaism and the Benefits of EFT (Episodic Future Thinking)
- Tishah b'Av 5775: Woe Unto Us!  (
written version only)
