Allison Kaplan Sommer, Noah Efron, and Don Futterman discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Unsettling
A Tel Aviv leftist sets out to meet settlers in Tekoa, and makes a remarkable documentary about the discussions she has. The settlers come off as decent, human and humane. Is that a problem?

Dissed
Why do so many Israeli parents worry that kids with disabilities might rob their own kids of the attention they deserve at schools and in after-school clubs and activities?

Censoring Computer Copulation
PM Netanyahu shelves a bill to make porn “opt-in” in Israel, arguing that it is a threat to free expression. But is regulating the internet really so bad?

Extra: We call on our patreon supporters to send us questions or topics they’d like us to discuss, and we’ll discuss them in the upcoming weeks. We want to be your Siri of Israeli culture and politics!

Music
Yigal Bashan, may his memory be for a blessing.
