Journalist and soon-to-be features editor for the Committee to Protect Journalists, Naomi Zeveloff, wunderkind critic Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida and Noah Efron discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Does Size Matter?

Twilight of the Idols, or, How to Philosophize with a Hammer

Gun, Grenade, Mic & Turntable
Why ’o why does an Army need a radio station?

All that and Roey Rieck and some of Israel’s best indie musicians, in a pandemic project called “Ha-Gal ha-Sheni,” “The Second Wave”!

A pandemic project by Roey Rieck and friends, called “Ha-Gal ha-Sheni”:

  • Tohav Oti Telefonit / תאהב אותי טלפונית (featuring Sivan Talmor)
