Excellent

Started listening at the beginning of the year and have been consistently impressed with the Tel Aviv Review. Interesting topics, great guests, and Dahlia and Gilead are probing, knowledgeable hosts with great senses of humour. I highly recommend it!

Invaluable deep-dive resource

If you follow Israel/Palestine from afar, the TLV Review is a must listen. Not only does it present fascinating perspectives on the current politics and recent history of the region, it also often platforms ideas and thinkers that are tangental to those issues, that you (or at least I...) would not find elsewhere, and that can enrich an otherwise dreary commute.
Highly recommended!
