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

Climate Change and the Jewish Question: We’ll Always Have Paris?
We discuss whether climate change is a danger to Israel’s very existence, and whether America’s withdrawal from the Paris Accord is a blow to Israel’s security.

Anthologizing the Occupation?
We mull over the new “Breaking the Silence” anthology of essays about the occupation, edited by Michael Chabon and Ayelet Waldman. What results might this politics-by-literature approach produce?

Waiting for Gadot
We ask whether the widespread fascination with Wonder Woman Gal Gadot’s IDF past and Israeli identity reflects some strange and unnerving psycho-sexual fetishization of Israeli Jewesses and power (Did we go to graduate school, or what?).

    Hi, could you perhaps provide links for the music in the podcast? I really liked the song by Sivan Kanzucker, but could not find it online since I couldn’t figure how to spell it correctly in Hebrew. Thanks!
