Allison, Eilon, and Noah discuss:
- Why one MK has complained that “we have become a country of idiots that does not respect the Torah,” in response to the wild celebrations following Maccabi Tel Aviv’s victory in the European basketball championship, and why a famous Hebrew University historian asserts that the victory is “the biggest proof that Zionism has failed when it comes to sports;”
- Whether the minimum wage should be boosted by 30%, as advocated by 61 Members of Knesset and by basically no economists;
- The state of poetry in Israel, including soulful readings of translations of our favorite Hebrew poems.
All this and new political music by the redoubtable David Broza!
