Host Noah Efron conducts a very special interview with a conscientious objector, and we pull together our favorite ‘Vatacountry’ segments.
Noah interviews IDF reservist Gilad Halpern, who spent the summer in a military jail for conscientiously objecting to his call-up during Operation Protective Edge. How does conscientious objection in Israel map onto the political landscape?
A personal reflection by podcast listener Andrew Wirth on art, freedom of expression, and the army in Israel; plus some of our favorite ‘Vatacountry’ segments about life in this infuriating country that, at the end of the day, we cannot help but love.
