A totally unique & eye-opening source of Palestinian expert voices

The host Yara Hawari is someone deeply embedded in both grassroots and academic circles in Palestine and across the diaspora. Her shepherding of the listeners across complex topics truly allows one to “rethink Palestine” issue by issue, with some incredibly knowledgeable Palestinian experts, be they lawyers, civil society leaders, academics and historians, or a range of policy analysts. I look forward to the podcast every month! Highly recommend!

Fantastic podcast

Informative, critical thinking and analysis. A great place to turn if you want to learn more about Palestine, whether you are new to the topic or have been engaged for many years.

Thoughtful analysis

Too much of today’s rhetoric is based on emotion and designed to generate more emotion. The thoughtful analysis of this podcast is based on fact and rational thinking. Thank you.
