Podcasts

Podcasts have entertainment and educational value, depending on your interests. Sometimes each episode stands alone, or, like the modern soap opera, one can follow a "series." They are often short, less than 20 minutes, yet some can reach upward an hour per episode. If you've never listened to Podcasts before, this is a chance to try something new. If you're a regular, then you may want to take a chance on one of these popular Jewish podcasts - free!

Can We Talk? 

“Can We Talk?” is produced by the Boston-based Jewish Women’s Archive, a national nonprofit that highlights the lives and stories of notable Jewish women. The first episode, aptly named “The Pilot’s Pilot,” tells the stories of two 1940s-era Jewish women pilots; the second explores the Jewish roots of the 1971 seminal women’s health book, Our Bodies, Ourselves.

Israel Story: Ancient Land, Modern Tales

Israel Story or Sipur Israeli, is a radio initiative that brings high quality, long-form non-fiction content to, and about, Israel.

Israelis, we all know, are a nation of storytellers. So in many ways our task was an easy one – to shine a spotlight on the little (and big!) dramas that comprise Israeli life. Our primary goal is to tell the story of a different, diverse Israel: To amplify voices that are rarely heard on the mainstream media, to showcase and celebrate the plurality of local communities and traditions.

These are the stories you’d tell a friend over a plate of hummus on a Friday afternoon, the stories you’d share with your partner at the end of the day – Everyday stories, told by, and about, regular Israelis.

The Promised Podcast

This weekly show, launched in 2011 in cooperation with the English-language edition of the newspaper Haaretz and Tel Aviv radio station TLV1, is all about Israeli politics, culture and society.

The hosts delineate their worldview in this way: “We live here, and love the place, and it also often drives us crazy. Mostly, we want to understand it, with an open mind and heart: the good, the bad and the ugly.”
