This week on Election Overdose, Haaretz's political podcast covering everything you need to know about the upcoming Israeli election:

Merav Michaeli is re-elected Labor leader and Zehava Galon is back to rescue Meretz. But do the once-grand old parties of the Israeli left still have a role to play when they’re both shells of their former self and Yair Lapid has occupied the center-ground? Speaking of Lapid, the prime minister this week launched his own campaign promising an end to personality-driven politics. Should we believe him?

Meanwhile in Likud, Netanyahu is losing control over his own image and the party's far-right allies have a lot to ponder over in the polls. Also, which long-forgotten party will feature in this week’s Party Animals corner? Listen to it all on our latest episode.

Each week, hosts Anshel Pfeffer and Dahlia Scheindlin 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.
