On Don’s birthday and the day before Miriam’s, Don Futterman, Miriam Herschlag and Noah Efron discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

The MK Formerly Known as Ex-Member of the Coalition Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi
Mertz MK Ghaida Rinawie Zoabi quits the coalition, sending Israeli politics into turmoil, only to rejoin three days later. What the hell was that about?

Thank You for Your Service
After days of vicious debate, Israel’s coalition and opposition agree to pay college tuition for discharged combat soldiers. Is that really a good idea?

Denied of the Valkeries
Wagner died 140 years ago. Is it time to put to rest our Gevalt-by-Association, and let his music boom from Tel Aviv stages?

Son of a Surgeon
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion: Don just dropped an amazing podcastilogical monologue about growing up his father’s son, and we hear all about it, not just from the author, but also from the auteur!

All this and a new debut record by Joav Ben-Moshe!
