Subscribe To The Podcast

Noah, TLV1’s Gilad Halpern and Times of Israel Ops & Blogs Editor Miriam Herschlag discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Lapdogs of democracy

We discuss the uncertain future of the new Israel Public Broadcasting Corporation, and the uncertain future of freedom of the press in Israel. What sort of a press does a country like Israel need?


On the matter of Black Lives Matter

The new Movement for Black Lives platform describes Israel as a perpetrator of “genocide” against Palestinians. We discuss the depression that engulfed us after we read it, and how we should navigate this murky water.
