In Episode 8 of our Election Overdose podcast, Anshel Pfeffer and Dahlia Scheindlin together with this week’s guest Ksenia Svetlova ask what is "the Russian vote"? Why do Israelis from Russian-speaking countries vote mainly for the right-wing? Why are some of their representatives in the Knesset vaccine-skeptic and does that attract voters?

Also, what was Benjamin Netanyahu trying to achieve in his rare prime-time TV interview this week? Why is everyone ganging up on Labor’s Arab candidate? And will the battle between Naftali Bennett and Gideon Sa’ar decide the outcome of the election?
