Is a massive move to the center going to change Israeli politics beyond recognition? How did Ehud Barak make such a killing in between government jobs? And should free newspapers be banned? All this and more in The Promised Podcast.

Olivier Fitoussi

Don, Eilon and Noah discuss:

Whether there is — as journalist Yossi Klein Halevi recently wrote — a slowly surfacing, stealthy, steadily swelling, and subtly subversive moderate center in Israeli politics

  • Why so many ex-pols are becoming rich through influence peddling, and what can be done about it
  • Whether a proposed new law that would ban free daily newspapers is a triumph or a tragedy for democracy.
  • All that and the heartbreaking new album by Israel’s most important hip-hop artist, Sha’anan Streett.
