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

What Just Happened?
Tuesday’s elections feel like they changed everything and nothing at all. What can we make of their odd, inconclusive results?

What Next?
Building Israel’s new coalition will be like one of those old puzzlers about missionaries taking cannibals and goats on boats across the Amazon. Is there any way forward?

What Will History Say?
How will history remember the September, 2019 elections?

How We Spent Election Day
For our most extremely generous Patreon supporters, we talk about how we spent election day, an odd mix of a laid-back, beach-holiday day, and an anxiety filled freak-out about our country and our future, our daughters and our ducats.

All this and the future of Israeli hip hop, Nenzo!
