“Vatacountry” excerpts from November 2011:
- Don discusses the Ethiopian holiday of Sigd, an official Israeli holiday, where the celebration involves embroidered umbrellas and a physics-defying dance performed exclusively with the shoulders.
- Eilon tells us what happened when his very erudite taxi driver, also a food blogger, met his artistic hero Dani Karavan.
- Noah recommends Shimon Peres’ biography of David Ben-Gurion, which is full of nifty anecdotes and captures the great respect the author had for his subject.
This is a segment. Listen to the full episode of The Promised Podcast.
