In a very special, tribute-to-America episode, the sax-and-fiddle player (Alon Tal), the lead-singer-and-keyboardist (Bill Slott), and the bass-player (Noah Efron) of the fondly-remembered band, “Liquid Plumr” discuss two topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

Bill in Them Hills
What can we learn from Bill who spent three months in the West Bank trying to keep local Palestinians from being harassed by local Israelis? Sometimes, you just need to be there.

The U.S. and Us
How have America and Americans influenced Israeli culture and politics?

Are Two Better Than One?
For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra discussion: What is it like to have two countries?

Plus, music by three great Israeli singers, each born-in-the-U.S.A.


  • Yermi Kaplan — Ha-hitah Tzomachat Shuv
  • Josie Katz — Etzli ha-Kol Beseder
  • Omer Adam — Ve-Eich She-lo

    Bill is the most informative and inspiring person Ii have heard on any recent Promised podcast. I hope there are more in Israel like him. I have been a supporter of NIF for many years.

    I am a huge fan of this podcast. As a listener for about 7 years I can say this episode was one of the most memorable ever! Bill’s witness work and the story about Mintz and Katzman was incredibly memorable and moving. Please list the name of the Arab singer from Nazareth! Thanks
