The main thrust of this podcast is to shed light on a phenomenon that I’ve noticed over the course of the last decade or so.

You know what they say: two Jews, three opinions? Well, right now it often feels the Jewish community’s nuances are being drowned out. Emotions are running high, and the Jewish world can feel both monolithic and polarised. It can make having open, honest conversations about antisemitism and Israel/Palestine tough for Jews and non-Jews alike.
