Fantastic app!

I lived in Israel many years ago and don’t have many opportunities to practice here in the US. Absolutely love the contents of this engaging and fun podcast and Guy is a pleasure to listen to. I feel like I’m back in Israel every time I tune in and I keep wanting more! Keep up the amazing work!

Wonderful podcast!

I love Streetwise Hebrew. Although I am fluent in Hebrew because I live outside of Israel, I was always missing the nuances and slang of the language. No longer with Guy’s wonderful podcast.This podcast is presented in a wonderful and entertaining way and I have learned so much. Thank you for such a wonderful podcast!
