I would like information on the Einstein,Rosenthal,Podowski bridge theory.
 This deals with possible parallel worlds, or universes.

Could the names be Einstein, Rosen, and Podolsky?
There is no answer at this time.

Yes it is Podolsky (or Podalski)

I assume you are interested in this because you watch Sliders. 
Because Podalski is generally not associated with the original theory.

The theory I do not understand fully enough to give a proper answer.

A great book that is worth reading on stuff like that is Hyperspace by
Michio Kaku it is the best book on the subject of wormholes parralel
universes and other theoretical physics stuff.  I know it goes for
around twenty dollars canadian here.

*Checks Amazon*

There. it is an insanely cool book.

Or if you are financially challenged like me (i bought hyperspace at a garage sale)

there are some interesting articles on Kaku's website.

If you like SF books, try this one:

Einstein's Bridge by John Cramer

It is a fictional story based off the "hard science" principles you mention.

I believe it was Einstein himself himself who formulated the bridge
theory that you should play a side suit to a no trump contract.

The Einstein-Rosen-Podolsky Bridge (more commonly known as the
Einstein-Rosen Bridge) is a tunnel connecting two universes. It was
developed by physicists Albert Einstein and Nathan Rosen. They came up
with the idea that if an object had strong enough gravity, it could
literally rip space, creating a tear that would link parallel
universes. The only known object in the universe with that kind of
force is a black hole. Anyone who could enter the black hole would
find an opening or wormhole that would take them to another universe.
That wormhole is the Einstein-Rosen Bridge.

The problem with the Bridge is that the same force that warps space
would tear apart anything that tried to enter the black hole. Until
recently, it was believed that no one could do it. But in 1963,
mathematician Roy Kerr came up with a way that someone could approach
the black hole to enter the wormhole. On Sliders, Quinn Mallory
succeeded in the final step, creating a Bridge that allows people and
objects to safely enter a wormhole to cross into another universe.
