Allison Kaplan Sommer, Noah Efron and Wunderkind critic Ohad Zeltzer-Zubida discuss two topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

--Chair Today, Gone Tomorrow--

While we were washing our hands and not touching our face, did Israeli democracy just almost shatter into pieces?

--Too Loyal Opposition?--

--The Nice Side of Forced Isolation--

For our most unreasonably generous Patreon supporters, in our extra-special, special extra segment, we talk about some of the surprising nice things to come out of our forced incarceration under scary circumstances. The worst of times, like these, always seems to bring out the best in people, and we’re seeing it.

And the lovely harmonies of Yonina!
