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

Our Tragedy & Theirs
Should our papers, shows and sites be showing and telling us more about the suffering of Gazans, when we have so much pain of our own to come to grips with?

Bearing Arms
More people have applied for a gun license in the past month than in the prior decade. Should we be worried?

Is Noah About to Get His First Tattoo?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion: Israelis go in droves to tattoo parlors to ink memento of the October 7 massacres. What’s that all about?

All that and good coming from bad, and more new music written in the aftermath of the massacres. Also, last chance to pre-order Don’s book!
