Great podcast!

I really enjoy waking up with these guys. They’re funny, informative, and professional. I really appreciate the integrity of the journalism.

Don’t understand politics

Note that I’ve listen to NPR for many years and will still continue. However, as an American Israeli, I find it maddening that some of their reporters don’t understand non-American politics.
Today is Election Day at Israel and the reporter just say that “Palestinians” are voting which is absolutely wrong. In Israel, Arab Israelis do have the right to vote, as they should, but those are not Palestinians. The fact they don’t know the difference is disappointing.

Can’t start my day without Up First! #FreeHK

I’ll be honest, there are 2 shows I’m totally hooked on and that I NEED to hear before I start my day: NPR Up First and The Daily by NYT! The in coverage is revealing, educational and super entertaining! Also they cover topics that really matter, literally as they’re unfolding. Especially good has been the coverage of the situation in Hong Kong. Hong Kong is arguably the #1 most important issue right now when it comes to the struggle for global democracy. If you’re reading this review I would highly encourage you to 1. subscribe to this great podcast and 2. Voice your support (by contacting your house / senate reps) for the Hong Kong Human Rights & Democracy Act of 2019. This proposal will do a lot for the people of HK and now is the time they really need our help. Thank you guys at The Daily for covering this story and helping us all understand more clearly what’s happening in Hong Kong and around the world! Thank you guys for doing what you do :-)
