It's election time in Israel again, and Haaretz's Election Overdose podcast is back for a second season!
The Knesset has dissolved, the dates are set, a fifth Israeli election in three and a half years is getting Started. The parties will be rearranging themselves up to the moment they must declare their lists to the Central Election Committee. In the first formal week of the campaign, newly-anointed Prime Minister Yair Lapid burnishes his foreign policy credentials, and Benjamin Netanyahu faces damaging testimony in his ongoing corruption cases.
Hosts Anshel Pfeffer and Dahlia Scheindlin walk through the major events of the week and analyze what's coming next. For the first episode, Tal Silberstein, master of campaigns and political strategy, joins them to discuss the political landscape. Tal explains what he sees as the real question of this election. Hint: It's not all about Benjamin Netanyahu.
Each week, Anshel and Dahlia will bring all the news and analysis an Israel-election junkie needs, including polls, guests and trivia tidbits about the strangest parties in Israeli history.
