TPP is my lifeline to all things Israel. Particularly when abroad in the galut. These are witty, smart, insightful Israelis who are always informative and fun to listen to.
— Axel Chitlin
This podcast is fabulous: fun, witty, musical, inspired. Talk about Israel and issues by critical Americans who live in and love Israel. My favorite part of each podcast is the closing portion, What a Country! Try this, you will love it!

I download the latest from this crew. Trends are emerging from each of the regulars that are fascinating albeit unknown to themselves. A reality show for Zionists!

About the show

An inside view of how Israel can warm your heart and make your blood boil. It’s a show by a journalist, a professor and an NGO guy who live in and love Israel even though it drives them crazy, and who each week discuss the latest in Israeli politics, culture and society.
