    #286 - The Philosophy of Abortion and the Meaning of Life (Natan Galulazar)

    #286 - The Philosophy of Abortion and the Meaning of Life (Natan Galulazar)

    One of the fundamental questions that divide the right and left today, all over the world, is the question of agency. Are we in control of our lives? Or are our lives playing out some deterministic script? Are we non-playing characters in a reality-sized computer game?

    More than 200 episodes ago, we hosted Dr. Yaron Brook, Chairman of the Board of the Ayn Rand Institute, on the podcast. One of the central tenets of Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism is that we are not NPCs in some video game. Well, not quite in those words. Rather, Rand claimed that it is our moral duty to selfishly pursue our own happiness. At the basis of that claim is the idea that the individual rests at the center and he or she (or they) are capable of shaping their own lives.

    Today, we are joined by another student of philosophy, another Ayn Rand fan boy, another man who also believes we’re all selfish, self-centered joy-seeking bastards, and good on us for that.

    Natan Galulazar is a father of two, content creator, Objectivist, musician several days a year, and public relations manager of an Israeli high tech firm. We are super thrilled to be joined by Natan today to talk about objectivism, the Israeli right, abortion and any other random topic that comes up because… why not?

    #284 - Proving The New York Times' Anti-Israel Bias (Lilac Sigan)

    #284 - Proving The New York Times' Anti-Israel Bias (Lilac Sigan)

    The New York Times has never been a great friend of the Jewish People. 80 years ago, for example, during the Holocaust, what was arguably the most important American outlet didn’t do much to expose its readers to the atrocities that led to the Holocaust, nor the atrocity of the Holocauset itself. What’s even more amazing, is that the publisher of the NYT during that period was a Jew - Arthur Hays Sulzberger.
    In modern times, it seems like the Times constantly takes the pro-Palestinian angle, even when it means spreading actual fake news. Only a year ago, in a list of the child victims of the war in Gaza, the NYT included a photo of a kid who died 7 years prior in Ramallah.

    That is why our guest today, renowned Maariv columnist and author Lilac Sigan, has decided to take it upon herself to carefully trace the NYT’s coverage of Israel on a day-to-day basis, and to conclude once and for all how biased they actually are. We’re super happy and excited to have Lilac here with us today to talk about the NYT, Israel and fake news.

    More than 5 years ago, in November 2016 - before the world turned upside down - Doron Nir was our first guest ever on the podcast. Doron was - and still is - an entrepreneur as well as one of Israel’s podcasting pioneers.

    Ever since that legendary episode, Doron went on to found Stream Elements, which is now one of the fastest growing, most promising, new Israeli startups in the world. Stream Elements is a platform for online streamers - mainly gamers, but not only - who want to enrich their streams with a variety of amazing tools and features. And if the last sentence is Chinese to you, don’t worry, because we have Doron Nir with us today, straight from the new Hipster Capital of the world, Austin, Texas!

    Doron is the President and Co-Founder of Stream Elements. His podcast Geekonomy, which he co-hosts with yet another Stream Elements co-founder Reem Sherman, is one of the most successful Hebrew podcasts to date. We’re super happy to have Doron back on the podcast again today to discuss his company, his career and much more!

    Israel is currently in the midst of a deadly Palestinian terror wave, the likes of which we haven’t seen for years. 14 lives of innocent civilians have already been lost, in 4 terror attacks - all in less than a month.
    In the meantime, merely 10 months after Bennet’s government came to be, its foundations are already crumbling. A few days ago, Bennet lost his coalition’s majority in the Israeli parliament - the Knesset - when his head of coalition and a member of his party - MK Idit Silman - announced that she can no longer be a part of the coalition, for ideological reasons.
    Indeed, Bennet betrayed his voters when he formed a coalition with Mansour Abba’s Raam party, an Arab party that some say is a sister to the Muslim Brotherhood organization. And now, when he lost his majority in the Knesset, some journalists claim that Bennet and his political ally Yair Lapid, are relying on the Arab Joint List to save them from new elections. The Arab Joint List’s members, have a long record of statements and actions in support of terrorists.
    All that puts Israel - and Israelis - in turmoil. As many Israelis can’t help but wonder - when and where will the next terror attack be? - we thought it might be insightful to talk to someone who unfortunately knows grief personally.
    Yossi Tzur is the father of Asaf Tzur, who was murdered in 2003 in the horrific terror attack on city bus 37 in Haifa, in 2003. Since then, Yossi devotes his life fight terrorists and terror supporters. We’re honored to have Yossi on the show with us today to talk about his son, and to hear the perspective of a bereaved father on what our country is going through.
