It’s order in the recording studio!

Schneps Media is thrilled to announce the debut of an all-new Brooklyn Paper Radio podcast, which is returning to the airwaves as one of the first digital programs under the company’s streaming arm, Schneps Broadcasting.

Starting next week, the new Brooklyn Paper Radio will return with weekly Tuesday episodes chock full of local news you need to know, including exclusive interviews, deeper dives into its stories that are driving conversations across Kings County, and expertly curated lists of where to go and what to do in the better borough.

But to celebrate its launch, co-hosts Anthony Rotunno, Brooklyn Paper’s editor-in-chief, and Johnny Kunen, whom some listeners will remember as “Jimmy” the producer, welcomed Schneps Media President and Publisher Victoria Schneps-Yunis for a very special episode this week, featuring a must-listen interview between the Brooklyn-bred Schneps-Yunis and another local luminary, the Hon. Judith Sheindlin — whom millions of television viewers know better as Judge Judy.

The two forged a friendship as classmates at Midwood’s James Madison High School, back when kids were more familiar with their neighbors than their smartphones, according to the judge.

“You knew your neighbors and your neighbors knew you,” Sheindlin said. “It was a closer community and we weren’t tied together by machines the way children are now.”

The women only strengthened their bond as each pursued their equally accomplished careers, with both offering some sound advice to young professionals looking to kick-start their own professional journeys.

For that, however, you’ll have to tune in to the full show, which is live now on, and, of course, available via one of the many fine services that stream the beloved podcast.

And don’t forget to come back next week for the first full episode of the new Brooklyn Paper Radio.

Brooklyn Paper Radio is recorded and podcast live on Tuesday afternoons — for your convenience — from our studio in America’s Downtown and can be found, as always, on, on iTunes, and of course, on Stitcher.
