Episode #205: Bibi in trouble; electric cars

Rosen makes the argument that electric cars might force us to slow down — which might be a good thing. Goldbrener bats it back in his face, but his co-host rebounds to sing the ambivalent joys of gluten-free dining and over-react to a recent shooting(!) in Goldbrener’s neighborhood. Meanwhile, good news: Israel is going to the moon, Israelis are winning Oscars and Kimel’s son is playing for the state championship! And then:

Are Benjamin Netanyahu’s latest machinations good for the Jews?

Word on the street is that Bibi is working with a pair of nasty far-right racist groups to solidify his power base. But is this true? Does a barrage of negative press make it so? Goldbrener breaks it all down (along quick history lessons about Meir Kahane and the Jewish diaspora from Middle Eastern countries) and lets you draw your own conclusions.

Rosen’s future car?
