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!

Music: All songs by David Broza, from his latest album East Jersualem –West Jerusalem.
