Still Crazy Good After All These Years

I reviewed the podcast three years ago, and since then all I can say is... it's gotten even better. For anyone who speaks English and is interested in Israeli politicsand life in Tel Aviv, this podcast is a marvel. Increasingly, I realize that it sets an amazing example of civilized argument and discussion, as the three hosts butt heads and debate the issues without ever losing their temper or spoiling their endearing bonhomie. Plus, you get Noah Efron -- the lead host -- who is brilliantly funny, chooses interesting music for the bridges, and delivers powerful, witty and moving personal essays at the end of each show that often leave me wiping away the stray tear or two.

Incredibly thoughtful commentary on Israel

Noah, Allison and Don are fantastic hosts to this well researched podcast about israel today. It’s done with heart and care. Fantastic music. Thanks for making it happen week after week for years and years.

English language podcast of the Israeli Left

Liberal commentary on Israeli politics and society interspersed with a sampling of Israeli pop and indie bands. Informative, funny, insightful, and at times heartbreaking.
