This podcast is published by the Jewish Daily Forward and is hosted by former Voice4Israel speaker Daniel Gordis and by Peter Beinhart. This is a debate-style podcast that is both polite and hard hitting debate.
While the Forward is typically considered a progressive, far left publication, Zionists will be impressed by Gordis’ strong arguments. Season one of this podcast is particularly interesting in its in-depth discussions about the Israeli/Palestinian conflict and efforts to boycott Israel.
