The “Stuck in the Middle With Who?” Edition

Allison Kaplan Sommer, Don Futterman and Noah Efron discuss two topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

One Man’s Extremist
Prime Minister Yair Lapid says he’ll form a government “without extremists.” What could possibly be wrong with that?

If I Can’t Dance
Is there a “joy disparity” between Israel’s happy-go-luck right and its bummed-out left, our pusses perennially soured?

Who Thought That Breaking Shariah Law Was a Good Idea?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion: A generally-considered-top-drawer-television-correspondent and Foreign Desk editor for prestigious Channel 13 nightly news, Gil Tamari, sneaks into Mecca for a “scoop” during the Haj, breaking Shariah Law, Saudi Law and the canons of human decency. What gives?

All this and the lovely Anat Moshkovski,  in celebration of the birth of baby Adi!

    Once again, I am thoroughly and completely entertained by the podcast. Of course, my most favorite part is your “what a country….” Segment. Don’s story about the banks last week was absolutely hysterical and so typical but such craziness is now typical here in the US as well. This week’s wonderful stories by the 3 of you were both touching, funny and informative. Thank you for reminding how much I feel part of that country even though I live. “Hutz l’aretz”.
