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

National Unity?
Does the idea of tossing out of the government the far-right parties, and swapping in the center-left, makes a lick of sense? Is this even possible anymore?

Save Us from Ourselves, Joe Biden !?!
Is Israel’s left sending to DC a droid with the message: “Help us, Joe Biden. You’re our only hope”?

News Consumption Overload
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion: What happened to all the news?

All that and a tribute to one of Israel’s great feminist pioneers, Esther Ellam, who died this week. Plus, the punky pop (or is it poppy punk) of Yishai Berger!
