With just under three months to go before the election, Haaretz’s Election Overdose podcast asks the million dollar question: can we, and should we, trust the polls? What are they worth at this point in time, and do they really serve the public, or are they misleading voters in the service of murky political interests?

Also on this episode, we ask whether Likud’s old-new economic plan has a point, will the far-right Religious Zionism party get its act together, do either of the candidates for Meretz’s leadership have an idea of what the party stands for and do the members of Yesh Atid really think Yair Lapid is second only to God?

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.
