 Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas is facing the biggest test of his political career. Resentment from the cancelled elections and years of backchannel dealing was climbing, but reached a climax after Nizar Banat, frequent critic of the Palestinian Authority, was apparently killed in his home by PA security forces last week. Hundreds took to the streets in protest and to demand Abu Mazen step down.  

This week, Greg is joined by K...

The Biden administration is now using the language of “security, freedom, and prosperity in equal measures" for Palestinians and Israelis in its approach to Israel/Palestine. While the language may be new for the U.S. government, it’s eerily familiar to us. We discuss the new language, what it might mean, and its similarities to language we’ve been using for years. 

We also discuss an important Washington Post op-ed by Michael G...

Who is Naftali Bennett, Israel’s likely new Prime Minister, what unifies this new government, and what does it mean for a future of peace for Israelis and Palestinians alike? These questions—and Sarah's love for sheep—on this week's episode.

We discuss these events, what this moment means for peace, and what pro-Israeli, pro-Palestinian, and pro-Peace Americans can do in response. This is an important episode.

  • If you can never get enough true crime... Congratulations, you’ve found your people.

  • Dr. Death

    We’re at our most vulnerable when we go to our doctors. We trust the person at the other end of that scalpel. We trust the hospital. We trust the system. Christopher Duntsch was a neurosurgeon who radiated confidence. He claimed he was the best in Dallas. If you had back pain, and had tried everything else, Dr. Duntsch could give you the spine surgery that would take your pain away. But soon his patients started to experience complications, and the system failed to protect them. Which begs the question: who - or what - is that system meant to protect? From Wondery, the network behind the hit podcast Dirty John, DR. DEATH is a story about a charming surgeon, 33 patients and a spineless system. Reported and hosted by Laura Beil.
