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.

Sophisticated and committed voices

I just listened to the first podcast with Zena Agha and host Yara Hawaii. Seriously, one of the best experiences with podcasts ever. Such a powerful sense of justice mixed with a sophisticated analysis of the politics of mapping, told in straightforward ways. Excellent job.
