Too much polygamy? Too few ’hoods? Not enough packages? The Promised Podcast mulls it all over.
Politics & Society
With the Mid-East collapsing around us, should Israel hunker down? And should Israel’s next president be a Nobel laureate chemist? Listen to the Promised Podcast!
Ten years ago this week, Arik Sharon proposed for the first time pulling out of Gaza. What’s happened since? That and chickenshit show-politics and 1984 surveillance on The Promised Podcast.
Eilon, Noah and The Times of Israel’s Miriam Herschlag discuss the passing of Nelson Mandela and Israel’s ambivalent relationship to him, Avraham Burg’s spilling the beans on Israel’s nukes, and the brouhaha over vegan activist, Gary Yourofsky.
Allison, Eilon and Noah discuss (1) the new head of the Labor Party – “Buzghi” Herzog – and his plans to give peace a chance, (2) the facebookization of the Knesset, and (3) the (figurative and, sadly, literal) death of the old cultural guard. All this and cool songs by Efrat Ben Zur with lyrics by Emily Dickenson!
