Allison Kaplan Sommer, Noah Efron and Wunderkind critic Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

No Go Tiations
Why, O Why, can’t Israel form a friggin’ government?

Six Physicists, Two Computer Scientists, an Engineer, an Economist and a Psychologist
Coronavirus doesn’t distinguish by sex, religion or profession. But should that be true, too, of the committee tasked with devising our “exit strategy”?

Zionormativity (and the Queering of Yiddish)
Do Israel and Zionism need to be “queered,” now more than ever?

After We’re Told That We Can Go Out, Do We Just Abide and Go Out?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we talk about whether, when the government says it’s o.k. to go out to restaurants and send our kids to school, and take in a movie at the multiplex, we’re going to feel comfortable doing it.

All this and the smoky and ethereal moodiness of Bela Tar!

Bela Tar, ahead of her new album:

  • Lu Rak Hayit Yoda’at (לו רק היית יודעת)
  • This Corner
  • Sway with Me
  • Moon Beams
