I started listening yesterday and became a patreon supporter today. Such an urgently needed voice on Jewish anti-colonial solidarity across North America and Palestine. And importantly raising awareness of the cross of secularism. Shkoyach!!
treyf always offers interesting coverage and content on radical left jew-y things, and is intersectional in its approach which is very refreshing! but tbh what always keeps me coming back for more is the loving and hilarious banter between samuel and david.
Love this podcast
I wish there were more podcasts like this! Very refreshing.
