The “Take a Deep Breath” Edition

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

What the Hell Just Happened?
What, if anything, can we learn from this week’s elections about the hearts and minds, hopes and dreams, of Israeli voters?

What the Hell Happens Next?
Has the time come for Israel’s center-left to accept that Benjamin Netanyahu is going to continue as Israel’s Prime Minister, even as he’s tried for bribery, fraud and corruption?

Still More About the Elections
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we talk still more about the elections, and the important things that happened at the edges of the very biggest stories, things like the great successes of the Joint List and of Shas, and other crucial marginalia.

All this and the crazy-brilliant singing of our 19-year-old, Ethiopian-Israeli representative to the 2020 Eurovision Contest, Eden Alene!

Eden Alene (or just “Eden”), our 19 year old 65th-Eurovision-Representative-Elect!

    Hi!
    You mentioned the video of Eden Alene with a guy on guitar. I can’t find it anywhere. Care to share??

  2. Noah J Efron says:

    You bet, Douglas! Here it is (and I’ll put it on the FB page as well). Thanks for reminding us.
