The “Can’t Spell Campaign Without Manic or Panic” Edition

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

A Pre-Election Reflection
This election campaign was maybe the weirdest in Israel’s history. What the hell just happened?

Red Ties, Blue Ties
Netanyahu has one. Saar has one. Bennett has one. Lapid has one. Lieberman has one. And Gantz has one. How to all the American political consultants running our election campaigns affect Israeli politics?

On the Road and Off the Derekh
If you’re born a religious Zionist in Israel, there’s a one in three chance you’ll be secular when you grow up. Is that a fact that matters??

Taking Two for the Team
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, we discuss the many (and growing) calls for Meretz and Blue&White to withdraw from the election, essentially self-immolating on the Mr.-Spockian grounds that “logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.” Should two center-left parties euthanize themselves, for the sake of the rest of us?

All that and Mayco, celebrating the release of her socko first EP!
