The “There Will Be Blood” Edition

Allison Kaplan Sommer, Noah Efron and Wunderkind critic Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

What’s the Matter with Kiryat Malachi?
A sociologist says Israeli “liberals” are the least tolerant group in the country, and folks call for his head on a pike.

Write Makes Right?
Do we need more (or less) “activist journalism” that doesn’t just describe the world, but tries to change it?

There Will Be Blood
In Israel, your HMO will check whether you are “ritually pure” if you want it.

Israelis’ Very Real Fears Following the Killing of Qasem Soleimani
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we discuss how we were affected here by the news of the killing of Qasem Soleimani. It was weird to have this huge thing happen in our neighborhood, that could vastly affect our lives (in ways we cannot possibly foresee), and yet it’s sort of not about us, at all.

All this and the lovely sounds of Gahliliot, Fireflies!
