Episode #160: Saudis provoke, David stumbles.

This week we offer a streamlined episode of your favorite Jewish-themed podcast, launching into a long “what would you do?” examination of incidents happening on the Bay Area’s rapid transit system, BART, before returning again to the latest Larry David-related news. Was his SNL joke a joke about the Holocaust? Or was it about himself?

For our main event, we return to an area of Goldbrener expertise and great interest, the Middle East, to ask:

Is a reformed but unstable and perhaps provocative Saudi Arabia good for the Jews?

Self-styled reformer Modammed Bin Salman Bin Abdul Aziz is making waves in Saudi Arabia, jailing opponents and rattling swords with Iran and its proxies. Is there any way this — and the prospects of an official Israel-Saudi alliance — could be good for the Jews? Listen in as your favorite bearded Libertarian breaks it down.

What would you do?
