Allison Kaplan Sommer, 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.

“Who Are You, Naftali Bennett?”
Is Israel’s incipient prime minister, Naftali Bennett, the hard-line ideologue that most people take him to be?

No Place Like Home?
Must the Prime Minister’s family live in the official Prime Minister’s residence, even if they’d rather stay in their villa in Ra’anana, not far from Allison?

Who Let the Dogs In?
What explains Israel’s canine-mania?

So We Dropped-in on the New Clubhouse App, And…
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion, after we spent hours on the drop-in audio social media app “Clubhouse,” listening to Palestinians and Israelis try to talk, we try to get out of fetal position long enough to describe what we heard.

All that and the moving new record from 75-year-old Shalom Hanoch!
