In this episode of The Promised Podcast, Don, Allison and Noah discuss:

- Whether Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman’s proposal to exchange blocs of population is sincere or mere smartassery;
- What can and should be done to prevent the unjust, inefficient, anti-meritocratic and patently slimy aspects of the tight-knittedness of Israeli social networks, without destroying the networks themselves; and
- Why Israeli parents let their kids play with fire and rusty nails and take candy from strangers
